You may find an excellent hiking path to the surrounding mountains just from the back door of Ballachulish House. Treat yourself with a bicycle or Segway from the Dragon Tooth Golf Club, or just climb to see and shot beautiful views of the valley from above. #ballachulish #dragontooth #ballachulishhouse #scotlandhighlands #hikingscotland #hiking
Urquhart Castle is een 13e-eeuws kasteel, gelegen aan Loch Ness nabij Drumnadrochit in de Schotse regio Highland. Het kasteel is gebouwd door de familie Durward. Vanaf 1308 is Urquhart Castle koninklijk eigendom totdat het 1479 aan de familie Grant wordt gegeven. In de vijftiende en zestiende eeuw heeft Urquhart veel last van invallen door de MacDonalds. In de zeventiende eeuw verliest het kasteel zijn strategische betekenis en het wordt in 1690 verlaten. #historicaltoursireland #historicaltoursscotland #urquhartcastle #scotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandhighlands #scotland_insta #visitscotland #discoverscotland #scotlandtourism #tourismscotland #adarewalks #newcastlewestwalks #ballingarrywalks
Urquhart Castle, Scottish Gaelic: Caisteal na Sròine, sits beside Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland. The castle is on the A82 road, 21 kilometres (13 mi) south-west of Inverness and 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) east of the village of Drumnadrochit. The present ruins date from the 13th to the 16th centuries, though built on the site of an early medieval fortification. Founded in the 13th century, Urquhart played a role in the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century. It was subsequently held as a royal castle, and was raided on several occasions by the MacDonald Earls of Ross. The castle was granted to the Clan Grant in 1509, though conflict with the MacDonalds continued. Despite a series of further raids the castle was strengthened, only to be largely abandoned by the middle of the 17th century. Urquhart was partially destroyed in 1692 to prevent its use by Jacobite forces, and subsequently decayed. In the 20th century it was placed in state care as a scheduled monument and opened to the public: it is now one of the most-visited castles in Scotland. The castle, situated on a headland overlooking Loch Ness, is one of the largest in Scotland in area. It was approached from the west and defended by a ditch and drawbridge. The buildings of the castle were laid out around two main enclosures on the shore. The northern enclosure or Nether Bailey includes most of the more intact structures, including the gatehouse, and the five-story Grant Tower at the north end of the castle. The southern enclosure or Upper Bailey, sited on higher ground, comprises the scant remains of earlier buildings. #historicaltoursireland #historicaltoursscotland #urquhartcastle #scotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandhighlands #scotland_insta #visitscotland #discoverscotland #scotlandtourism #tourismscotland #adarewalks #newcastlewestwalks #ballingarrywalks

Glenfinnan (Schots-Gaelisch: Gleann Fhionnainn) is een dorp in Schotland gelegen in het raadsgebied Highland, aan het noordelijke uiteinde van Loch Shiel, 21 kilometer ten westen van Fort William. In 1815 werd net buiten het dorp een monument opgericht. Dit ter markering van de plaats waar Charles Edward Stuart, alias Bonnie Prince Charlie, op 19 augustus 1745 zijn koninklijke vaandel hees waarmee de 2e Jacobiteinse opstand een feit was. Deze gebeurtenis leidde 8 maanden later (16 april 1746) tot de Slag bij Culloden. Het monument werd ontworpen door de Schotse architect James Gillespie Graham. Het bestaat uit een toren met hierop een standbeeld van "de onbekende Highlander in kilt" Sinds 1938 is het monument in beheer bij de National Trust for Scotland. Naast het monument staat een bezoekerscentrum waar een permanente tentoonstelling is ingericht over de Jacobiteinse geschiedenis. Het Glenfinnanviaduct is een spoorwegviaduct in de West Highland Line tussen Fort William en Mallaig. Het werd gebouwd door de firma Sir Robert McAlpine en werd voltooid in het jaar 1901. Het viaduct, dat volledig uit beton is vervaardigd, bevat 21 bogen van elk 15 meter; het hoogste punt bevindt zich 30 meter boven het maaiveld. #historicaltoursireland #historicaltoursscotland #scotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandhighlands #glenfinnan #glenfinnanviaduct #glenfinnanmonument #instascotland #tourguide #tourguidelife #tourismscotland #discoverscotland #adarewalks #newcastlewestwalks #ballingarrywalks

Torridon. The Horns of Alligin, Lovely grade one scrambling. Behind, the shunned mountain that is Beinn Dearg, mere inches short of making Munro status and completely overshadowed by its illustrious neighbours.

“The caged bird sings with a fearful trill, of things unknown, but longed for still, and his tune is heard on the distant hill, for the caged bird sings of freedom.” (Maya Angelou) If one could spread the wings and fly away like a bird, above majestic castles and dark blue water and fields of purple flowers breathing in their sweet smell, feeling the cool breeze and water droplets on the skin, moving forward guided by wind only, never looking back... 💜 . . . . . . #welltravelled #beautifuldestination #tasteintravel #passionpassport #wanderlust #cntraveler #bbctravel #stayandwander #mytinyatlas #ourplanetdaily #forbestravelguide #meettheworld #exploremore #lonelyplanet #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #scotland #scotlandsbeauty #visitscotland #scotland_greatshots #scotland_insta #scotlandhighlands #scotlandexplore #tlpicks

Elevándose en la cumbre de un acantilado junto a las enfurecidas aguas del Mar del Norte, nos encontramos con las impresionantes ruinas de una fortaleza casi inexpugnable en su época, hablamos del Castillo de Dunnottar en la costa este de Escocia. Conectándose con tierra firme únicamente a través de un estrecho canal de tierra que a su vez desciende para mostrar ante ti a las ruinas de la fortaleza en lo alto del cabo y su precipicio rocoso de más de 50 metros de altura, hará que esa imagen sea una de las más impactantes que recuerdes de Escocia y que su visita sea difícil de olvidar. Las ruinas que vemos hoy en día datan de los siglos XIV y XV aunque se sabe que ya había edificaciones más antiguas en este macizo rocoso. Está situado al sur del pueblo de Stonehaven, en un lugar estratégico para controlar las rutas marítimas y ha estado siempre a salvo de desembarcos gracias a su pared rocosa. Otro día os enseñaré como es por dentro este castillo, sus rincones sombríos, mezclados con la verde hierba que hay dentro y lo que se cuenta de él... ya que es uno de los más embrujados del país. Por hoy nada más, que tengáis una feliz tarde de sábado. Un saludo! 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔶 🔸 🔸 🔸 #dunnottarcastle #scotlandroadtrip #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #unlimitedscotland #visitscotland #insta_scotland #ilovescotland #scotland_greatshots #scotlandexplore #scotlandtrip #betravellermyfriend #iamtb #travelgram #travelblogger #mytravelgram #scotland_lover #scotlandhighlands #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandshots #igscotland #amazingtravelbeauty #thisisscotland #lovescotland #beautifulscotland #hiddenscotland #bbcscotlandpics #scotlandisnow #scotlandsites #scotspirit

Storytime: the 1st band I photographed was Runrig at my college in 1985. I'd been offered my own radio show back then (as a singer) but my best friend had just died in an accident & I'd stopped singing. I also didn't play - my fiddle, broken in teenage years, had lain in it's case for about 10yrs. After that 1st gig I got talking to singer Donnie Munro (who shared kind words to encourage me to sing but, I never really did again). However, thro photography, I ended up taking photos of the band at a series of gigs in Inverness. There, guitarist Malcolm Jones suggested I mend my fiddle & play again... Photography was put aside & music revisited with what would be an almost all consuming passion for many happy years to come. PLAYING THE FIDDLE AGAIN my life was forever CHANGED for the better. These early Runrig gigs were great fun but, more than that, this group was inspirational in a way that's impossible to fully explain. Runrig were the sound of Scotland, the music, the voice, the beating heart of the Gael. As time went on, I sat in & played tunes with Malcolm & others at Edinburgh's West End Hotel. Then I went to Skye, befriended by Arthur Cormack & Blair Douglas - the musical support act at the Inverness Runrig gigs. My own musical journey expanded around Scotland, to Ireland & thro a scholarship, to America, Canada & beyond. Without the music of Runrig, to ignite my passion for Gaelic & Scottish culture - would my life's journey have brought me to live & work in the Highlands today? I don't know but I feel tremendous gratitude to this band & indeed, to all who have shared with me the joy of music. Now, Runrig are finally bowing out with #LastDance at Stirling Castle but this is a group who will always be loved by so many Scots (and so many others too around the world) all who have been fortunate enough to discover and appreciate their wonderful music and expertly crafted lyrics. What a legacy Runrig leave, they opened the door for bands such as Skipinnish & Skerryvore to follow as they too go on to carve their own path. THANK YOU RUNRIG x #Runrig @runrigofficial @bruceguthro #musicalegacy #gaelic #scotland #scotlandisnow #shonamcmillancelticreflections
