Drummond Castle and Gardens Perthshire Scotland [02:40]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of Drummond Castle and Gardens on visit South of Crieff, Perthshire. This Scottish castle is best known for its gardens, often described as the best example of formal terraced gardens in Scotland. The castle comprises a tower house built in the late 15th century, and a 17th century mansion, both of which were rebuilt in Victorian times. The gardens date to the 1630s, although they too were restructured in the 19th century. The lands of Drummond were the property of the Drummond family from the 14th century, and the original tower house was built over several years by John Drummond, 1st Lord Drummond of Cargill, from about 1490. In 1605 the 4th Lord Drummond was created Earl of Perth, and added to the castle. John Drummond, 2nd Earl of Perth, laid out the first terraced garden around the castle in the 1630s. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
GLASGOW CITY [18:28]
GLASGOW CITY The city that I was born and raised in, Glasgow City is Scotland's largest city and the third largest city in Great Britain. Glasgow city has the best shopping outside of London and is the financial business centre of the UK outside of London. The home to many of the greatest inventors of the Modern World, a very proud bustling city with much student life, shops, pubs, bars and clubs. The city has much style and beautiful architecture and is something I tend to overlook, but one thing I find whenever I hear a foreigner speak of the city is their love for the architecture around them. To me, it's something I am used to seeing, so I can't say I see much of it. In this video I show much of Glasgow at night and day, from the GOMA museum to Princes Square, Buchanan Street, Argyll Arcade, Trongate, and more. Perhaps this video will give you a taste of Glasgow, which is something I wanted to put together to show you the city I was born in. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I would be happy to answer as best I can. Glasgow City has 4 Universities, and many Colleges. And the great thing about Glasgow city is the fact that it's a centre point in Scotland, with easy access to much of the places surrounding, with beautiful scenery from the likes of Loch Lomond, Stirling is not that far, or Edinburgh which is just an hour away from Glasgow on the train. It's definitely a city worth visiting.
