Who used to live in a house like this? Abandoned homes like these can be found all over @theouterhebrides, and we can’t help but wonder about the stories and history they hold. We love how @gennybean made this one look so cheerful with its garden of heather! #lovetheouterhebrides 💙

Now, we know we got you excited for summer last week, but @keithmh2016’s photo of Cradhlastadh in Lewis shows that winter in the islands can be just as beautiful as the (*sometimes* sunnier) summer months. Another reason to #lovetheouterhebrides 💙

Thanks to: @englishhighlander Castle Tioram meaning "dry castle" is a ruined castle that sits on the tidal island Eilean Tioram in Loch Moidart, Lochaber, Highland, Scotland. It is located west of Acharacle, approximately 80 km (50 mi) from Fort William. Though hidden from the sea, the castle controls access to Loch Shiel. It is also known to the locals as "Dorlin Castle". The castle is a scheduled monument. Castle Tioram may date to the thirteenth- or fourteenth century. It appears to have originally been a principal stronghold of Clann Ruaidhrí. Eilean Tioram, the island the fortress sits upon, is first recorded in a charter of Cairistíona Nic Ruaidhrí, daughter of Ailéan mac Ruaidhrí. According to early modern tradition, preserved by the seventeenth-century Sleat History, the castle was erected by Ailéan's granddaughter, Áine Nic Ruaidhrí. The castle certainly served as the seat of the latter's Clann Raghnaill descendants for centuries. As such, Castle Tioram is the traditional seat of the Clanranald (Clann Raghnaill) branch of Clan Donald. The castle was seized by Government forces in around 1692 when the clan chief Allan MacDonald of Clanranald joined the Jacobite Court in France, despite having sworn allegiance to the British Crown. A small garrison was stationed in the castle until the Jacobite rising of 1715 when Allan recaptured and torched it, purportedly to keep it out of the hands of Hanoverian forces. It has been unoccupied since that time, although there are some accounts suggesting it was partially inhabited thereafter including for the storage of firearms from the De Tuillay in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising and Lady Grange's account of her kidnapping.

I had a tiny road trip with my mama. We went to the Hermitage, then on to Kenmore for a wee dip in Loch Tay with lovely views of the Crannog, then on to Killin for some soup and finally we drove back via Loch Earn. Every moment was so beautiful and reminded me of the countless weekends and holidays we'd spend in these places many moons ago. It is fair to say that I have lost a little sparkle over the last seven or eight years (is that what growing up is?), but spending time on these magical roads, among ancient trees or submerged in a chilly loch I felt a twinkle return.

M E A L T F A L L S This 55 meter high waterfall is one of great beauty and the only one I have seen which falls directly into the ocean below. Mealt Falls is a must see if you are ever lucky enough to visit the Isle of Skye.

Morning everyone! I should hopefully have some new content out in the next few weeks or so. Until then, you're stuck with reposts/re-edits of older shots!🤣 A dramatic evening on the Moray coastline at Hopeman with a fantastic display of light. It was abit of a mad rush to try and find some foreground interest! Thank you for looking, comments are always appreciated too, I always strive to reply to every one of them👍

A volte basta una giornata con il cielo azzurro per iniziare con il piede giusto. A volte basterebbe avere le highlands scozzesi un po’più vicine a casa. Sulla strada da Ullapool all’Eilean Donan Castle, 2014. #scotland #loch #highlands

Kinlochleven. There is no British season that doesn't render the landscape beautifully, each colouring it with its own differing hues, patterns and textures. But maybe because of its lessening frequency, I can't help but feel the traditional winter season, with its low-slung sun, stippling frosts and hill-blanketing snow, has to be the most dramatic of all transformations. Here, the magnificent Loch Leven, dead calm and part frozen, reflects the glory of the winter Highlands to double our viewing pleasure, as if knowing that seeing it once wouldn't be quite enough. #scotland #scotland #visitscotland #fujifilm #fujifilm_uk #thisisscotland #visualsofscotland #ordnancesurvey #unlimitedscotland #westhighlandway #kinlochleven #igersscotland #explorescotland #scottishcollective #scotlandshots #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandmagazine #winterlandscape #gloriousbritain #lochleven #bbcscotlandpics #highlands #lovescotland

3 curiosità su Edimburgo:⁣ 1️⃣ Ad eccezione della domenica e di alcuni giorni festivi, ⁣ ogni giorno, alle 13.00 in punto, un cannone annuncia l'ora. In passato serviva ad indicare l’ora ai marinai e a chi voleva sincronizzare il proprio orologio. 💣⁣ 2️⃣ Molte panchine nei parchi pubblici e nei giardini sono dedicate a un caro defunto. Tra queste spicca una, nel parco di Princes Street, dedicata a John Lennon 🎸⁣ 3️⃣ La capitale della Scozia ha una nebbia "personale", detta haar, che proviene dalla costa e che ricopre la città per diversi giorni. Questa, unita con il fumo dei camini, dà vita a un cielo color giallo chiamato Pea Soup.⁣ ----------------⁣ #edimburgo #scozia #regnounito #edinburgh #lovegreatbritain #granbretagna #scotland #ig_edinburgh #loves_edinburgh #edinphoto #hiddenedinburgh #visitscotland #lovescotland #closes #princesstreet #viaggioinscozia #ig_edimburgo #igers_edinburgh #travelgram #instatravel #instaviaggio #diariodiviaggio #viaggiare #viaggio #viaggiatori #holidayguru #holidayguruit #holidayguru🇮🇹
