Ardverikie House is a 19th-century Scottish baronial house in Kinloch Laggan, Newtonmore, Inverness-shire. The house was made famous as the fictional Glenbogle estate in the BBC series Monarch of the Glen.⠀ ⠀ The lands historically belonged to Clan Macpherson. The 20th chief, Ewen Macpherson, leased Benalder and Ardverikie in 1844 to the Marquess of Abercorn, "one of the trend setters in the emerging interest in deer stalking in Scotland." The Marquess expanded the original shooting lodge. He served as Groom of the Stool to Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, who along with the prince spent three weeks at Ardverikie in the late summer of 1847.⠀ ⠀ In 1860, Abercorn transferred the lease to Lord Henry Bentinck, another stalking enthusiast, who lived there until his death in 1870.⠀ ⠀ Sir John Ramsden purchased the Ardverikie and Benalder forests in 1871 for £107,500 (approximately £6.5m today). In 1873, the house was destroyed by fire, and was rebuilt from 1874 to 1878. It was rebuilt in the popular style of Scottish baronial architecture, designed by John Rhind.⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ 📷 @bertkeen⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ .⠀ #scotland #scotland_insta #scotland_ig #scotland_lover #scotlandlover #scotland_greatshots #scotlandexplore #scotlandshots #scotlandphotography #scotlandtravel #scotlandlove #scotlandtrip #scotlandsites #travelscotland #igscotland #beautifulscotland #explorescotland #scotlandsbeauty #lovescotland #discoverscotland #instascotland #igersscotland #loves_scotland #thisisscotland #ilovescotland #historicscotland

Crathes Castle is a 16th-century castle near Banchory in Aberdeenshire. This harled castle was built by the Burnetts of Leys and was held in the family for almost 400 years.⠀ ⠀ Crathes sits on land given as a gift to the Burnett of Leys family by King Robert the Bruce in 1323.⠀ ⠀ In the 14th and 15th century the Burnett of Leys built a fortress of timbers on an island they made in the middle of a nearby bog. This method of fortification, known as a crannog, was common in the Late Middle Ages. Construction of the current tower house of Crathes Castle was begun in 1553 but delayed several times during its construction due to political problems during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots.⠀ ⠀ It was completed in 1596 by Alexander Burnett of Leys, and an additional wing added in the 18th century. Alexander Burnett, who completed the construction of Crathes, began a new project, the early 17th-century reconstruction of nearby Muchalls Castle. That endeavour was completed by his son, Sir Thomas Burnett. Crathes Castle served as the ancestral seat of the Burnetts of Leys until given to the National Trust for Scotland by the 13th Baronet of Leys, Sir James Burnett in 1951. A fire damaged portions of the castle (in particular the Queen Anne wing) in 1966.⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ 📷 @allyimages⠀ . ⠀ . ⠀ .⠀ #scotland #scotland_insta #scotland_ig #scotland_lover #scotlandlover #scotland_greatshots #scotlandexplore #scotlandshots #scotlandphotography #scotlandtravel #scotlandlove #scotlandtrip #scotlandsites #travelscotland #igscotland #beautifulscotland #explorescotland #scotlandsbeauty #lovescotland #discoverscotland #instascotland #igersscotland #loves_scotland #thisisscotland #ilovescotland #castlesofinstagram #castleruins #castles #castlesofscotland

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

Over Easter we were out on our adventures. First stop was Moffat, beautiful place where we had fantastic warm sunny weather. We walked along the River Annan where I spent as much time as possible in the water cooling down. #westiesofig #westiesofinstagram #westie #eastertravels #moffat #riverannan #visitscotland #visitmoffat #lovescotland #westieontour #daisy_boo_1

This natural wonder goes by the name of Bow Fiddle Rock, and it's just one of the many gems you can discover on the Moray Coast. Located in the cute fishing village of Portknockie, this spectacular sea arch is even more impressive than I imagined 💙 ⁣ ⁣ All that could be heard was the squawk of seabirds and the movement of the sea. Bow Fiddle Rock was lit by the sun on one side; the same beams illuminated the bright blues of the water 🌊⁣ ⁣ I spent nearly two hours in the vicinity of the rock - on the coastal path above, and on the pretty pebbly beach. I could've stayed a lot longer.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #AD #moraycoast #moraycoastaltrail #bowfiddlerock #portknockie #publictransport #service35 #northeast250 #portknockie #scottishbeaches #sea #naturalwonders #scotland #scottishcollective #visitscotland #blogscot #igersscotland #igscotland #scotlandisnow #hiddenscotland #ig_scotland #lovescotland #instascotland #scotlandlover #scotland_ig #scotlandtravel #scotland_insta #hiddenscotland #natgeo #travelgram

LOCH CILL CHRIOSD AND BLA BHEIN, Isle of Skye . . From last month’s trip to Skye. We had very challenging conditions for the whole trip, with gale force winds, rain, hail and snow to contend with. But some of the light in between was quite amazing, and the scenery of course is incredible. Moments before this shot an almighty hailstorm had pelted us with its icy cargo. Join @Ann e_strickland_photographer and myself this October in Skye and the Scottish Highlands. October 5-11, max group size is 6.

Spent Easter Sunday in the hills learning some new skills to up our hiking game! Not only was it a beautiful day, we actually learned a few things! . I now know how to walk efficiently and carry injured people with my poles, and also learned about the early signs of hypothermia and low blood sugar, amongst many other things we covered! . Jonny's just a bit gutted because our kit list has grown by a few hundred £💷😂 . If you're looking for an experienced guide to lead you on the Scottish hills, I would highly recommend checking out @philnelml He was super chilled out, had good banter, and was highly knowledgeable 👌 . Thanks @philnelml for spending your Easter 🐣 with us 🤪 . . . #mountainleader #mountainguide #skill #keeplearning #learning #scotland #iGoOutdoors #CreateYourTrail #ig_scotland #lovescotland #adventure #scottishmountains #outdoors #mountains #freshair #mountainclimbing #ThisIsMyOutdoors #GetOutside #hiking #ukhiking #hillwalking #scothike

📍Aultbea, Wester Ross . Happy Coosday! Back to work today after a fantastic weekend with friends on the North West coast. We may not have had 4 days of continuous sunshine like many other places but when the sun shone it was sublime ☀️ . I took this photo on Saturday, Sam’s conveniently timed bike ride gave me an opportunity to get reacquainted with my camera and this lovely, very friendly, lady caught my eye. She’s not quite your typical Easter animal but we are in Scotland after all! 🐮 . . . . . . . #coosday #highlandcow #scotspirit #lovescotland #visitscotland #icu_scotland #unlimitedscotland #scotlandgreatshots #uk_greatshots #explore_scotland #discoverscotland #scenicbritain #passionpassport #hiddenscotland #thisisscotland #highlandcollective #traveling_scotland #ig_scotland #scotland #wildernessculture #highlandcoo #westerross #bbcscotlandpics

This is me. Ive decided to take part in the #mumsinbusinessassociation #miba2019 #challenge Im Leeannne, I run Made In the Highlands. I’m a Mammy of three gorgeous boys, aged 13, 11 and 2.5. They are funny, cheeky, loving gorgeous young boys who are the reason I get up and do what I do every morning. Im a wife to my gorgeous hubby who infuriates and make me laugh on a daily basis. I moved to the Highlands of Scotland nearly 10 years ago from Newcastle and love Highland life. I’m inspired daily by the beauty of the place we live and my art and journals always reflect this, producing a great deal of nature inspired artwork. #inspiration #girlpower #mibavip #bossmum #wahm #igotthis #womeninbusiness #femaleboss #womenhelpingwomen #bossbabe #empoweringwomen #ambitiouswomen #entrepreneur#mibaigc #thisisme #highlands #scotland #landscape #visitscotland #nature #travel #mountains #photography #scottishhighlands #lovescotland #travelphotography

~ ARRAN ~ Spent the bank holiday weekend over on the Isle of Arran, seeking adventure and productivity. For such a small island, there is so much to do & explore, yet it remains tranquil & unspoilt... My kinda place! Got plenty of mountain running and biking done, with idyllic weather conditions - as well as the necessary uni stuff. Views and sunsets were plenty, with so many ideal camp spots. Yet another fantastic Scotland trip!🙌🏼🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 . . . . . #ThisIsMyAdventure #TheGreatOutdoors #ProperAdventure #TrailMagazine #LiveBreatheOutdoors #AdventureBlog #MountainsForTheMind #GetOutside #ExploreToCreate #TheOutbound #LifePoints #LifeWithoutLimits #ExploreEverything #OSMaps #Scotland #IsleofArran #VisitArran #LoveScotland #HighlandCollective #ScotSpirit #VisitScotland #ScotlandsBeauty #UnlimitedScotland #ThisIsScotland #ExploreScotland #IgersScotland #HiddenScotland #DiscoverScotland #ScotlandIsNow

Earth Day brings forth so many emotions: celebration, regret, hope, foreboding, awe, insignificance and (perhaps) the transcendent ambition that we may yet learn to live in nature, for nature and with nature. Standing inside Fingal’s Cave on Staffa is a good place to think transcendent thoughts. Today I think I’ll put on Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave Overture and recall that feeling. Happy Earth Day! (And many more.) #earthday #scotland #hebrides
