After walking through Inverness Cathedral, we strolled down the River Ness, then took a footbridge back over the river toward the city center. The bridge led us right up to what seemed like the tallest steeple in town, the Inverness Free Church of Scotland. #scotland #hebrides #instascotland #igscotland #westernisles #scotland_insta #ilovescotland #highland #highlander #inverness #invernessscotland #invernesscastle #freechurchofscotland #freechurch #invernesscathedral

City of Glasgow College Tues night.

Esto es una belleza !! Regrann from @castlesofscotland - Home to the Earls of Marischal, Dunnottar Castle has held host to William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots, the Marquis of Montrose and the future King Charles II.
▫️
Most famously though, it was at Dunnottar Castle that a small garrison held out against the might of Cromwell’s army for eight months and saved the Scottish Crown Jewels from destruction.
▫️
After the war the heavily damaged Dunnottar was retained by the Army and used as a depot until returned to the Keith family in 1695. During this period the ruling Stuart dynasty had been overthrown and replaced with the dual Protestant monarchs of William of Orange and his wife Mary.
▫️
Although widely accepted, a Jacobite movement emerged and in 1707 William Keith, Ninth Earl Marischal was implicated and imprisoned. Although released his son - George Keith, Tenth Earl Marischal - later participated in the 1715 Jacobite rebellion including fighting at the Battle of Sherrifmuir. With the defeat of the uprising he fled abroad only returning in 1763 after a pardon granted specifically at the request of Frederick the Great of Prussia.
▫️
During this period Dunnottar had been sold into the hands of the York Building Company who plundered the ruined remains for masonry, lead and other items of value.
▫️
The impregnable fortress is perched on a giant conglomorate on the edge of the North-Sea.
