Happy Friday all. I said I’d posted my final one from Skye...so I lied! Loved this derelict chapel and graveyard we found there. There was a little information panel on the wall and the first recorded minister there, in 1505, shared my surname. I knew I belonged there, the Highlands calling me home! 😂

Drawing room. The castle is the ancestral home of the Brodie clan, but has now been transferred to the national trust. It was built in 16th and 17th century but its foundations date back to 12th century. The castle is rich in history and tragedy. The most prominent of the two which stand out for me: the castle is said to have hosted hundreds of Jacobite rebels in the front lawn of the grounds, days prior to the Jacobite rising battle. It is also home to the ghost of lady Margaret Duff, wife of chief James Brodie (1786), who fell asleep by the hearth in her bedchamber and who’s dress caught alight. She perished in the fire. #scottishhistory

Exploring Brodie castle. I don’t just love it because it’s beautiful. But because it also bears my name.... ✨ even got to sample some Brodie tea during afternoon tea. #brodiecastle

Eilean Donan Castle

This castle was founded in the thirteenth century. It became a stronghold of the Clan MacKenzie and their allies the Clan MacRae. The MacKenzies’ involvement in the Jacobite Rebellions led in 1719 to the castle’s destruction by government ships. Lieutenant-Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap’s twentieth century reconstruction of the ruins produced the present buildings. (Wikipedia)
We have wandered both inside and outside the walls of this castle today. #eileandonancastle #castlesinscotland #scottishcastle #eileandonan #mackenzieclan #clanmacrae #clanhistory #scotlandsbeauty #scotland_greatshots #skottland #bestofscotland #beautifuldestinations #jacobiterebellion #myphotography #myphoto #photolovers #pictureperfect #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #exploreeverything #explorescotland #ig_photooftheday

Hi everydody! thanks for your likes💚
In the twelfth century the 'Neill clan divided once more. Aedh (Hugh) Macaemh Toinleasg (the 'Lazy-arsed Youth') O'Neill, King of Cenel Eoghain 1176-1177, Royal Heir of Ireland, slew his father's slayer, 1160; restored O'Neill power after his inauguration at Tullyhogue; established his rule over all Tir Eoghain (Tyrone) and became supreme in the north of Ireland.
▫️
Amongst other issue he had two sons:
▫️
AEDH Meth 'the Fat' O'Neill, King of Northern Ireland, ancestor of the O'Neills of Clannabuidhe (Clanaboy) and, in the female line, of The Hon. The Lord O'Neill (Shane's Castle), the late Lord O'Neill of the Maine (formerly Captain Terence O'Neill, formerly Prime Minister of Northern Ireland) and The Hon. Hugh O'Neill (Chairman, Northern Ireland Tourist Board). �Niall Ruadh 'the Red' O'NEILL, KING OF ULSTER 1230, had (with other issue) a son BRIAN O'NEILL, LAST NATIVE KING OF IRELAND 1258-1260.
King Niall's descendants were styled Ua Neill Mor (The Great O'Neill) to distinguish them from their rivals of the Clannabuidhe (Clanaboy) branch whose Chief was styled The O'Neill Buidhe, or The O'Neill of Clannabuidhe.
This Niall was the direct ancestor of the Great Red Hugh O'Neill, the last King of Ulster, inaugurated on the royal stone at Tullyhogue in 1594.
When this main line of the clan died out, the O'Neills of the Fews became their successors.
▫️
ART O'Neill, King of Ulster 1509-1514, was assisted in holding his appanage of the Fews against the English by 'his cousin king Conn Mor O'Neill' in 1487. His grandson Henry O'Neill, Lord of the Fews was living in 1563; he married Joan, widow of Ferdorcha O'Neill, 1st Baron of Dungannon, and mother of the Great Red Hugh (above), daughter of Cuconnaght Maguire, dynast of Fermanagh and by her had a son Turlough (or Terence) O'Neill, Lord of the Fews.
Turlough was succeeded by his son Henry of the Fews who left issue (with a younger son Shane (or John), father of Thomas 'Johnson" (John's son) from whom the Johnson baronets of New York claim descent). It is from this issue that Don Carlos, the present O'Neill Mor - Chief of his Name descends.

Getting up close to Castle Tioram (pronounce cheerum). Constructed circa 1200's. Unfortunately the Castle is falling into a state of disrepair. "The current, private owners apparently wish to convert the castle into a home, but cannot do so because permission has been refused (on the advice of Historic Scotland): while on the other hand the conservation bodies wish to secure the future of the castle as a romantic ruin which reflects its long history and is fully open to the public, but cannot do so because they don't own it. The result is a standoff that has gone on for two decades, during which time the castle has continued to gently crumble away into the sea. The one thing that everyone agrees about is that Castle Tioram is a unique, and uniquely important, building: yet it seems that because it is so important a standoff has arisen that could easily lead to its total loss". That would be a real shame.
The Castle can be accessed by foot at low tide via the sand bar causeway and obviously by kayak, either from the river Shiel or from various places on the west coast.

Today I retraced my family history all the was to the Old Castle Lachlan of MacLachlan Clan 🏰🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 One of the oldest Scottish clans, this is the old clan chapel where MacLachlan chieftains have been buried for the last 600 years ⚰️👲🏻 Including the last chieftain who was the first woman to be at the head of the clan 🙋🏻‍♀️

Retraced the steps of the MacLachlan Clan all the way back to Old Castle Lachlan 🏰 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #familyroots #maclachlan #clanhistory #scottishroadie

Hi there! tap twice on screen pls 💚
The particular Saint of the O'Neills was Mura, son of Feradach son of Eoghan, King of Ailech ca. 425. Mura was Abbot of Fahan and died ca. 645. The O'Neills were Keepers of his pastoral staff and bell.
▫️
In the eleventh century Anrothan, younger son of AEDH Athlamhan 'the Handy' O'NEILL, KING OF ULSTER 1030-1033 (Royal Heir of Ireland who was given the throne during his father's pilgrimage to Rome but who died in his father's lifetime in November 1033) moved to Scotland and married the daughter of the King of Argyll and received wide lands there.
According to the medieval Irish and Scottish genealogies he was ancestor of the MacLaghlans of Strathlachlan, The Lamonts of that Ilk (of whom the Lyons of Glamis, Earls of Strathmore, are probably cadets), the MacSorleys of Moneydrain, the MacEwans of Otter, the entire Clan Neill in Scotland (i.e. the MacNeills of Barra and the McNeills of Gigha and Colonsay), the MacSwins of Castleswin, and the MacSweeneys of Donegal.
▫️
For centuries the O'Neills were Kings of all-Ireland, Kings of Ulster and Princes of Tyrone.

At the end of February I will return to Edinburgh where I will continue my kiltmaking course presenting my children’s kilt as well as a men's kilted @scotclans. I will also prepare kilt no 4 so that I can finish it at home (Germany) again. However, I realized that it’s not enough just sewing on a kilt. I need to know more about the clans, the cloth, the traditional kilt and how it was used to wear it in the old days. And so I ordered a copy of this wonderful book hoping to satisfy my wish of knowing much more of all that. #kiltmakingcourse #kiltmaking #thekiltmakery #scotclans #scotland #tartan #tartankilt #theclansofscotland #clans #thecostumeofscotland #costumes #schottland #schottisch #schottischeliteratur #booksaboutclans #clanhistory #historyofclans #scottishclans #scottishhistory #bonnieprincecharlie #floramacdonald #johntelferdunbar #knowledgeispower #nesswalk #knowledgeandpassion #wissenistmacht #kiltsandbooks

Hi dear friends! Some history facts. Like me pls💚
THE O'NEILL FAMILY NIALL OF THE NINE HOSTAGES, King of Tara. Fl 400AD

The O'Neills are descendants of the Ui Neill, themselves the descendants of Niall of the Nine Hostages, living about 400AD. The O'Neills take their actual surname from Niall Glundubh (Black-knee) who was slain fighting the Danes in 919 and not from Niall of the Nine Hostages as so many imagine.
◽The mighty Ui Neill dynasty divided into two in the 400's, the Northern Ui Neill remained in the north while the Southern Ui Neill moved to Meath and the eastern midlands - they took it in turns to be Kings of Tara and, later, High-Kings of Ireland.

We completely section three and four of the Moyle way today.
First stop was Slieveanorra mountain,this small hill at the top of Glenshesk and Glendun can often be looked over, but it holds great significance locally.
The chieftain of the Mac Domhnaill Clan,Somhairle Buidhe Mac Domhnaill defeated the Mac Uighilín chieftains here in the mid 1500’s
Winning ownership of the #antrimglens in the process.
In more recent times this monument was erected to remember an Aviation crash.Walkers are able to view a memorial dedicated to the American service men who perished there on 3rd October 1942. A B-17 from the 401st Bomb Squadron crashed with 10 airmen onboard. There were only 2 survivors.
Next stop was Trostan Mountain, Antrim’s Highest point! #mountainwalk #forest #slieveanorra #clan #clanhistory #causewaycostalroute #glensofantrim #nineglenswalkingtour #coldfeet #walkni #walkireland #moyleway #ulsterway #discoverireland #discoverni. #antrim #antrimcoast #historyireland #aircrash #monuments

Wherever I wander , wherever I rove , the hills of the Highlands forever I love. #Scotland #Highlands #ClanHistory

'Lige' - deagh fhacal Uibhisteach a chaidh a chur ris an Fhaclair Bheag bho chionn mìos no dhà. Facal air leth inntinneach a' ciallachadh canàl no drèin air a dhèanamh le mac-an-duine. Tha ligidhean air feadh Uibhist a Deas, cuid dhiubh an cois chaistealan. 'S e seo an lige ann an Dreumasdal a bhios a' ceangal Loch an Eilein (Caisteal Bheagram) agus Loch Druidibeag (Dùn Raghnaill) ri chèile. Tha e coltach gun robh an dà dhùn a' dol aig an aon àm, agus gun deach an lige a chladhadh airson leigeil leotha siubhal ann an coit (bàta beag). Tha 'Loch Bun an Ligidh' san dealbh, agus air taobh thall den sin, tha 'Fèith a' Choite', dà ainm-àite a' fianaiseadh gun robh na cinnidhean a' cleachdadh nan ligidhean airson siubhal. Tha Eilean Bheagram agus Dùn Raghnaill nan suidhe do Chlann Raghnaill.

Good morning! This is a special pic from my Scotland trip last August. Taken at the ruins of Urquhart Castle, located right beside Loch Ness.
.
The castle is important in my family heritage, as back in the 14th Century, after the MacDonald Clan (aka the Lord of the Isles) were stripped of their claim to the castle, they raided it frequently for about 200 years! In true MacDonald fashion, they ended it all in a big bang!
.
An exempt from Wikipedia: "Known as the "Great Raid", this time the MacDonalds succeeded in taking 2,000 cattle, as well as hundreds of other animals, and stripped the castle of its furniture, cannon, and even the gates."
.
Lol, even the gates!
.
Hope you enjoyed a wee bit of history intake, have a great Tuesday all!
