It wasn't exactly what I was expecting of a castle, more of an estate manor.
Here are the some of the photos we took today.
|Quite an impressive sight.|
|We were greeted by the sounds of the pipes as we drove up|
|I quite liked the sign on the rubbish bin|
|There seem to be a lot of these babbling brooks around Britain|
|I went for a walk around the garden|
|Saw lots of pretty flowers|
|And a family of swans (there are cygnets in the foreground and a couple of white swans further back)|
|There were statues set in the walls.|
|And even vegatables (the broad beans looked quite healthy)|
|An oriental style bridge|
|Hercules keeps an eye on things|
|The view towards the southern end|
|The view towards the northern end|
|The Church of Scotland just across the road from the castle driveway|
|A sculpture of some otters and fish|
|A bench seat dedicated to a fisherman watched over by an old lady.|
We made another detour to look at a craft shop but didn't see anything of interest there.
Tomorrow we head north again to Inverness via Glen Bogle.
