Edinburgh seems to lend itself to imaginative time travel - it is not hard to imagine the days before motorcars when ladies wore long gowns and men top hats. Back then the stagecoaches and horse drawn carriages clattered along the cobbles. Today I enjoyed stepping out to blend a Victorian sartorial reference with the beauty of Georgian architecture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🇬🇧 One thing that I really loved from Scotland is that you could find a lonely house when you least expect it. Sometimes between mountains, near a loch… Like this one in Glen Coe, with an army of sheeps around it (Sorry, sheeps are not included in the pic).

🇪🇸 Una de las cosas que más me gustó de Escocia es la capacidad de encontrarte casas solitarias cuando menos te lo esperas. Como ésta en Glen Coe, que incluso tenía un ejército de ovejas alrededor (Lo siento, las ovejas no están incluidas en la foto).

In the 6th century Urquhart was home to Bridei, King of the Picts and in AD 580 was visited by St. Columba. Although it cannot be certain that this Pictish residence was indeed on the site of the current castle, some archaeological evidence supports it and the superb geographical position would have made it an ideal location.
▫️
The first known castle was built by the Durward family around the 1230s after they were granted permission to do so by Alexander II. During the Wars of Independence, Urquhart Castle was seized by the English. However, following their defeat at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, the garrison at Urquhart either abandoned or surrendered the castle.
▫️
In 1303 Edward I invaded again and once more took Urquhart, until Robert the Bruce's campaign in 1308. Thereafter, the castle remained a royal Scottish stronghold until 1509 when it was granted to Clan Grant. This brought it into the frontline as clan warfare broke out between the MacDonalds and the Grants, culminating in the 'Great Raid' of 1545 where Urquhart was stripped of virtually everything of value.
▫️
The castle played no notable role during the War of Three Kingdoms other than being stormed by a band of Covenanters on Christmas Day 1644, who were protesting at the Grants’ support of King Charles I.
▫️
The castle was last garrisoned in 1689 when James VII fled in the wake of the Glorious Revolution. The Government force withstood the subsequent Jacobite uprisings but in 1692 blew up key sections of the castle to prevent it being used as a military base again.

Of course, descents are important too. Luckily, the routefinding here just involved following the ridge, so it was easy enough despite being in a cloud. Apparently this is a typical view from a highland peak in winter.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas
Mountains of rain and sun
All that was good, all that was fair
All that was me is gone.
Say, could that lass be I?
