Midhope Castle is a 16th-century tower house and belonged to the Drummonds of Midhope, who were in possession during part of the 16th and 17th centuries. ▫️ Alexander Drummond of Midhope remodelled the tower in 1587 and his initials, with those of his wife Marjorie Bruce are on a former lintel now above a gateway. The property later passed to the Livingstones in 1664, before going on to the Hopes in 1678. ▫️ Midhope was latterly used to house farm workers after the building of nearby Hopetoun House, and in 1851, 53 people lived here, but it was later abandoned and is now semi-derelict. ▫️ More recently, Midhope Castle featured as ‘Lallybroch’ in the TV series ‘Outlander’. ▫️ Image by @nichbrand ——————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #travelblogger #master_shots #visitscotland #travelinggram #thisisscotland #travellingthroughtheworld #scotspirit #instascotland #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #modernoutdoors #visualsoflife #castle #discoverglobe #mytinyatlas #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #outlander #outlanderfan #moodygrams #explorescotland #lallybroch

Doune Castle with @rabbies_tours yesterday Doune has a long history of fortification. A Roman fort is nearby, and the masonry and earthworks of the present castle probably include parts of an earlier castle that stood here. But the way the castle looks today is largely down to ‘Scotland’s uncrowned king’. Doune was the seat of Robert Stewart, the 1st Duke of Albany and Governor of Scotland. He acquired the castle in 1361, when he married Margaret Graham, Countess of Menteith. Doune Castle is a popular filming location and has featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Game of Thrones and Outlander. Actor/director Terry Jones narrates an audio tour that reveals Doune’s exciting history and tales from the Holy Grail film set. Also tales from Outlander are told... #dounecastle #doune #historicscotland #fiftyshades_of_history #rabbiestours #loves_scotland #monumental_world #visitscotland #scotland #scotlandlover #scotland_greatshots #castles_oftheworld #loves_united_castle #gameofthrones #icu_scotland #ig_scotland #igscotland #lovescotland #outlander #scotland_insta #traveling_uk #traveling_scotland #thisisscotland #wonderlustscotland #hiddenscotland #unlimitedscotland #castlesofscotland #yourscotland #tlpicks #earthpix

" Callanish Standing Stones " The Callanish Standing Stones, 15 miles west of Stornoway on the A858 road, form one of the most complete stone circles in world. It is one of the most atmospheric prehistoric sites anywhere. Sited on a wild and secluded promontory overlooking Loch Roag, 13 large stones of beautifully banded gneiss are arranged, as if in worship, around a 4.5m-tall central monolith. Some 40 smaller stones radiate from the circle in the shape of a cross, with the remains of a chambered tomb at the centre. Dating 5000 years ago, the stones are roughly contemporary with the pyramids of Egypt. We don’t know why the standing stones at Calanais were erected, but our best guess is that it was a kind of astronomical observatory. #callanishstandingstones #isleoflewis #lovetheouterhebrides #historicscotland #fiftyshades_of_history #explorescotland #lovescotland #loves_scotland #scotland #scotlandlover #rabbiestours #scotland_greatshots #monumental_world #visitscotland #insta_scotland #instascotland #igscotland #ig_Scotland #icu_scotland #ig_cameras_united #traveling_uk #traveling_scotland #thisisscotland #kings_hdr #wonderlustscotland #unlimitedscotland #hiddenscotland #photosofbritain #earthpix #tlpicks

In the early twentieth century, the castle was converted into the infamous psychiatric hospital it is known for today. In 2002, the hospital was eventually closed and left to fall into a state of ruin. ▫️ In more recent years, comparisons have been drawn between Lennox and cult TV series, American Horror Story: Asylum ▫️ Image by @jamesgoldenboy —————————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #travelblogger #visitscotland #travelinggram #master_shots #thisisscotland #mytinyatlas #scotspirit #abandoned_addiction #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #scotshots #wonderful_places #castle #discoverglobe #asylum #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #earthfocus #castlesofscotland #explorescotland

A final trip out with the camera today and this time with my son. I took loads of pics so will post the locations separately - next up is the ruins of what once was the magnificent Dunmore Park. Dating back to 1820, and owned at that time by the 5th Earl of Dunmore this beautiful building now lies almost fully in ruin in the grounds behind the Pineapple Summerhouse. It saddens me deeply that such a magnificent building is left to simply succumb to the harsh Scottish weather and sadly no sign or hope of restoration 😢 The last picture is an artist representation of how it looked in its full splendour #historicscotland #historicscottishbuildings #dunmoreparkhouse #hiddenhistory #hiddenscotland #abandonedscotland #abandonedbuildings #scottishhistory #airth #earlofdunmore

Had a proper day off today and hit up @historicscotland Inchmahome Priory on the (grammatically rulebreaking) Lake of Menteith. I've been wanting to go for AGES and it was delightful. A trip on a wee boat always makes me happy* Now, bring me the dragon programme and leave me in peace. *unless it's that awful Liberty Belle boat at Disneyworld. It can absolutely do one. . . #onlylakeinscotland #historicscotland #makelikeabneyandtealandbop

Little trip to see the shipwreck at Corpach again, wanted to keep the recent yellow intrusion in my photos going as a little color challenge, help me look for specific compositions or ways to include a specific color in some of my photos ... I wouldn’t call this cheating but the couple on the beach had a good giggle. <——Swipe to see BTS ——> Sometimes you just gotta move sh!t around

Happy Earth Day! 🌿 Just got back to London from lovely Edinburgh (and am now planning on moving there asap). Hope you’ve all had a nice weekend! After a Hunger Games-esque train ride back (people will do anything for a seat) I’m very happy to be home 🌱
