There's a lot to be said for exploring Scotland in winter. It takes a wee bit more planning - you may have to leave home in the dark to enjoy the full day of daylight where ever it is you have chosen to spend the day, but I guarantee it will be worth it. Since moving to Scotland, even on the dreichest of days, I have found something that makes me smile. The colours, the light, rain caught on a cobweb, a rainbow. It's all magical and part of the charm. Don't be put off by the shorter days, just make it a different experience. #LetsgoEverywhere #BBCTravel #Travelling_UK #TravelPostcards #KeepitWild #SpotlightBritain #TBlogger #TravelGirl #TravelCouple #OutandAboutScotland #PostcardsfromtheWorld #HiddenScotland #OMGB #ScottishCollective #AdventureQueensScotland #AdventureQueens #RoamthePlanet #BloggerLife #LifeofaPhotographer #MelanieChaddPhotography

This beauty is Duffus Castle, one of Scotland’s finest motte and bailey castles, and if you like castles with a long history – you’re going to love this! 🙌 • #DYK Duffus Castle was once one of the strongest castles in Scotland, but it was reduced to a decaying ruin by the time of its abandonment in 1705? It still remains such an impressive sight though! 😍 • Mottes were common in Scotland during the 1100s and 1200s, before they were replaced by stone castles. They were fortifications, and usually consisted of a wooden keep on top of an artificial earthwork mound. Some also had an enclosed courtyard or bailey, containing other wooden buildings, protected by a ditch and palisade. • It’s situated on the Laich of Moray, a fertile plain that was once the swampy foreshore of Spynie Loch. This was originally a more defensive position than it appears today, long after the loch was drained. • The castle was originally built by a Flemish man named Freskin, who came to Scotland in the first half of the 1100s. After an uprising by the ‘men of Moray’ against David I in 1130, the king sent Freskin north as a representative of royal authority. He was given the estate of Duffus, and he built an earthwork-and-timber castle. • Freskin’s son William adopted the title of ‘de Moravia’ – of Moray. By 1200, the family had become the most influential noble family in northern Scotland, giving rise to the earls of Sutherland and Clan Murray! In about 1270, the castle passed to Sir Reginald Cheyne the Elder, Lord of Inverugie. He probably built the square stone keep on top of the motte, and the curtain wall encircling the bailey. • Visited Duffus Castle recently? Tell us what you learned in the comments below!

Vista sul castello di St Andrews. Non dimenticher mai i colori del cielo di quella sera, seduta su una panchina ad ammirare il tramonto, persa in chiacchiere e poesia! . .

The usual Calmac ferry isn’t running this week, so I’m hopping onboard with @staffa_tours to make my way to Eigg! Last time I was with them I was on Mull and took a brilliant tour to Fingal’s Cave. 😍 #AleciaAdventuresAgain18
Franklin wasn’t so convinced about the joys of sea ferries. The humans were pretty into it though. 2,5 hrs from Ullapool to Stornoway, in a lovely pet friendly zone on the @calmacferries. Scotland is so dog friendly. 🤩
Mud, Sweat & tears. I’ve imagined this moment over and over in my head throughout the year. Whenever I struggled for motivation, whenever I felt like walking, whenever I doubted myself. The thought of crossing the finish kept me going, so I’m not even bothered that I cried. It meant a lot!! __________________________________ #igersscots #instascotland #LOVES_SCOTLAND #scotland_greatshots #scotlandlover #ScotSpirit #LoveScotland #VisitScotland #choosemountains #highlandcollective #trailmagazine #GetOutside #ordnancesurvey #ukpotd #visualsofscotland #ScotsMagTour #OutAndAboutScotland #ProperAdventure #thisisscotland #scotlandexplore #ringofsteallskyrace #trailrunning #fellrunning

I love popping over to Glasgow! Every time I go I discover something new to love about the city. On my last trip I went around many of the Mackintosh sites to celebrate 150 years since the birth of the architect/designer/artist. I love his distinct style and I've come to really appreciate his impact on Glasgow! If you have no idea what I'm talking about you can check out the post on my blog 😉. 1/ The view from the Lighthouse 2/ The awesome spiral staircase to get to the view! 3/ Afternoon tea at the newly opened Mackintosh at the Willow 4/ One of the Mackintosh rooms at House for an Art Lover 5/ The beautiful Salon de Luxe at Mackintosh at the Willow 6/ The Kelvingrove Museum & Gallery, a must visit in Glasgow that also has a Mackintosh exhibition 7/ Scotland Street School Museum that Mackintosh designed 8/ The newest street art in Glasgow featuring Mackintosh himself! • • • • • • • • • #charlesrenniemackintosh #mackintosh #mackintosh150 #scotlandisnow #scotlandexplore #peoplemakeglasgow #nextstopglasgow #sponsored #visitscotland #thelighthouseglasgow #houseforanartlover #mackintoshatthewillow #glasgowstreetart #igersglasgow #igersscotland #igersscots #scotland_lover #scotlandphotography #scotlandtrip #scotlandshots #outandaboutscotland #glasgowlife #glasgowblogger #scotlandblogger #glasgowcity #glasgowstyle #kelvingrovemuseum

Esiste un luogo magico, che pochi conoscono, il suo nome è The House of the Binns. Situata in un bellissimo parco che domina il fiume Forth, questa casa vicino Linlithgow, è stata la casa dei Dalyells per oltre 400 anni. La casa attuale fu costruita nel 1612 da Thomas Dalyell, un mercante di Edimburgo che, fece la sua fortuna, alla corte del re Giacomo VI ed I, a Londra. Il figlio di Thomas, il generale Tam Dalyell, formò il leggendario reggimento dei Royal Scots Greys. Ci sono molti suoi ricordi in casa, così come pittoresche leggende sui suoi rapporti con il Diavolo. Viaggiando on the road, una meravigliosa sorpresa ci ha attesi, lungo il nostro percorso! :-) Nei prossimi articoli ve ne parlerò nel dettaglio . . There is a magical place, that a few people know, it's name is The House of the Binns. Set in beautifully landscaped parkland overlooking the River Forth, this fascinating house near Linlithgow, has been the home of the Dalyells for over 400 years. The present house was built in 1612 by Thomas Dalyell, an Edinburgh merchant who made his fortune at the court of King James VI and I in London. Thomas’s son, General Tam Dalyell, formed the legendary regiment of Royal Scots Greys. Do you know the colourful legends about his dealings with the Devil? Driving on the road, what a surprise we have had!

Uh oh, there’s a storm ahead. Stormy sutherland skies. Waterproofs on today.
Stirling Castle was the first proper English, or rather Scottish castle, that I visited. Compared to the Indian palaces, the 15th century castle seemed quite stark and definitely less opulent. The location, however, was fantastic. Surrounded by steep cliffs on three sides, it's clear to see why the castle was considered one of the most important fortifications in Scotland. It was also the residence of Queen Mary, the Queen of Scots and is seeped with the ingenuity and complexity which characterizes Scottish history. Walking on it's cobbled pathways, passing through it's mammoth sized halls, i came into this little room, off the kitchen and was greeted with this view. Standing by the window, looking at the green yet rugged landscape below, it's easy to get lost in time and imagine yourself as a part of the history and quiet perseverance of the castle. #stirling #stirlingcastle #edinboro #edinbourgh #scotland #scotlandhighlands #scotlandsbeauty #scottishhistory #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #scotland_insta #outandaboutscotland #scotlandexplore #greatbritain #castlesofscotland #castlesofgreatbritain #castle #castlehill #castlesofeurope #scottishhighlands #scottishqueens #historybuff #historybuffscotland #europe #instatravels #instatraveling #instatravelgram #instatraveller #travelscotland #traveldiaries #europetravel
Cracking weekend in Edinburgh. Had to take the opportunity to grab a couple shots. Such a photogenic place. This is the fountain in West Princes Street Garden. I'm reliably informed that it was installed in 1872. It wad a gift from gun maker Daniel Ross to the city of Edinburgh. #edinburgh #princesstreet #garden #edinburghcastle #castlesofinstagram #castlesofscotland #lensball_world #lensballin #fountain #lensball_shots #scotshots #scotlandtravelguide #scotland_greatshots #scotland4you #outandaboutscotland #hiddenscotland #uk_greatshots #limball #explore_scotland_ #explore_britain #unlimitedscotland #visitscotland #meanwhileinscotland #edinburghsnapshots #discover_edinburgh
