Edinburgh Castle

Little throwback with Jeff Garner @prophetik at Edinburgh Castle after the launch of his incredible collection “Women of the Crown” with @histenvscot - inspired by the original Royal fashion icon, Mary Queen of Scots. 🔥🏰✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Grantown on Spey

Muckrach Castle is a fully restored sixteenth century castle. John Grant of Freuchie (4th Laird of Grant) gave Muckrach to his second son, Patrick, in 1583 and the castle was built soon afterwards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . From 1978-85 the building was restored after lying in ruins for centuries and a stone dated 1598, with the arms and initials of Patrick and his wife, plus the motto “In God Is Al My Trest” which had been removed to Rothiemurchus, was replaced over the entrance at Muckrach Castle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . The castle, standing on the top of a steep bank in the valley of the River Dulnain, offers luxury self catering accommodation and is situated within its own grounds in a magnificent rural, yet accessible, location in the Scottish Highlands, Speyside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Scottish Highlands

✨🏰Kilchurn Castle was built in the mid-1400s by Sir Colin Campbell, 1st Lord of Glenorchy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . The castle comprised a five-storey tower-house at one corner of an irregular-shaped courtyard. The tower house still stands substantially complete, overshadowing the rest of the complex. On the ground level of the tower were a cellar and prison. There was a hall on the first floor and private chambers above. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . Photo by artist @kristyashton ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Balintore Castle

🏰✨“Lady Langman spent the summer at Balintore, but resided in South Africa. One day when Lady Langman was not in residence, the house-keeper detected a distinct whiff of her perfume. Sometime later, it was discovered that Lady Langman had died abroad on that very se day. This is one of the many Balintore ghost stories!“ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . Lady Langman is David’s favourite previous occupant of the castle... “She is the one person who seems to have injected some positive energy into the building, during its long history of neglect. “ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . How exciting is it that it is now possible to stay at Balintore Castle on Airbnb! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . I just back from a little stay at Balintore and it feels like a proper break from the world. It’s pretty impossible to describe at it’s second to none; the history-charged stones of this sumptuous and huge old building, the breathtaking 360views of rolling hills and peacefulness... But beyond that it is the generosity and kindness of David which is beyond words and makes me very emotional. He is always so happy and positive even though he’s been through very tough times and has a lot on his shoulders. He has taken on this titanesque project 12 years ago and has been devoting his whole life and self to save and bring Balintore back to its former glory. On the side, whilst saving the building from degrading even more and slowly but surely restoring the structure David has been collecting accurate pieces of all sorts of furniture! I love it as it’s what you expect in castle, having the inside matching the outside which sadly is not something so easy to find as it is much more difficult to do so. Staying in a castle is unique but at Balintore, where so much positivity and love has been involved, makes the whole experience so very unique. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . .

‘A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard: Why can't we all be like that bird?’ - Edward Hersey Richards ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . I have asked my friend how long did he have Wizard for? He answered: ‘Oh, I’ve had him since he was an egg’🦉🥚💚 Wizard is now 22 years old!!!🏰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
