Happy Easter Monday! And yay for another free day off work 🙌🏻 It’s another beautiful day outside but we’re not going too far afield because I’ve got a lot of things on my to-do list after our holiday (a lot of wedding-related stuff in particular!) How are you spending your bank holiday Monday? ☀️
Sunrise this morning as seen from the Pyg Track heading up Snowdon. I didn’t see them at the time but planes were flying across the scene creating jet trails. At least I think they were planes... Shot on iPhone 8
Corseyard Farm aka The Coo Palace aka Castle Haven is a model dairy steading near Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, built in 1911 for James Brown of Knockbrex. Loosely gothic decorative details, including glazed tiling, Roman-style asbestos roof tiles, faience bricks internally. Steadings consisting of large milk parlour, stables, cartsheds and barn, laid out around square courtyard, with dominant square tower. Single and 2-storey buildings of tooled coursed masonry, depressed arch windows and segmental vehicle entrances, all with bold keystones. Corbelled eaves with double row of decorative salt-glazed pantiles set in mortar bedding, ball finials to angles, red asbestos roof tiles in diamond pattern, ceramic ridge cresting. Yup, it does like like a castle.
Duntrune Castle is located on the north side of Loch Crinan and across from the village of Crinan in Argyll, Scotland. It is thought to be the oldest continuously occupied castle on mainland Scotland. It was originally built by the MacDougall clan in the 13th century, along with several other castles in the area, including the MacDougall stronghold of Dunollie Castle near Oban. Duntrune Castle was eventually taken by the Clan Campbell. In the 17th century the castle was besieged by the rival MacDonalds, under Alasdair Mac Colla. The Campbells sold Duntrune in 1792, to the Malcolms of Poltalloch. The castle is now owned by Robin Neill Malcolm, current clan chief of the Clan Malcolm.
We walked to the top of Cheddar Gorge at the weekend and were rewarded with this iconic view of the reservoir - it was worth every step! It’s a spectacular place - the Somerset landscape never fails to amaze me 💗 Ps we tried to go to the cheese shop but it was too busy 😭
