Callendar Park & House [05:08]
Callendar House is a mansion set within the grounds of Callendar Park in Falkirk, central Scotland. Its present form, in the style of a French Renaissance château, dates from the 19th century, although at its core is a 14th-century tower house. During its 600-year history, Callendar House has played host to many prominent historical figures, including Mary, Queen of Scots, Oliver Cromwell, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Queen Victoria. The current building is by far the most substantial historical building in the area, with a 300 ft (91 m) frontage. Callendar House became derelict and was boarded up until 1997, but has been extensively restored and houses an extensive museum and heritage centre, including a restored 1825 fully working kitchen, with costumed interpreters creating an exciting interactive experience. It is set in the nationally-important historic designed landscape of Callendar Park, which also contains a section of the Antonine Wall World Heritage Site. The 170 acre woodlands and gardens host a number of interesting historical features including an Arboretum, Ornamental Gardens and a family Mausoleum, as well as a boating lake and childrens play areas.

Dunnottar castle, part 3 [06:48]
In the Middle Ages, lords, from kings to humble lairds,ate in the Great Hall with their household. Their status was perhaps stressed by the raising of the lord's table at one end of the hall, lifting him literally above the heads of his dependants, but he ate and drank with them daily. After the meal he might retreat into the privacy of a drawing room, but would often remain in the hall to listen to minstrels and musicians, or to play at cards and gamble on dice with his servants. However, since 1603, when James V1 of Scotland ascended the English throne, Scotland had been opened to English influences, and her nobility in particular adopted the practices of the English aristocracy. Chief amonst these was what is known as 'keeping state', where a self conscious nobility placed great stress on its status. Now wishing to distance themselves from their social inferiors, lords adopted an 'upstairs downstairs' division of the household, eating and sleeping in private suites while the servants ate in the kitchen or common hall. And so we come to the darkest chapter in the history of Dunnottar. The fury of the authorities reached fever pitch when the Duke of Monmouth, the King,s illegitimate son, endeavoured to take the British throne by force. In Scotland the ill-fated rebellion was led by the Duke of Argyll. it was then that a body of Covenanting prisoners, 122 men and 45 women, who refused to acknowledge the new prayer book in particular and the King's supremacy in spiritual ...

Parade of Navy, Army and RAF personnel in Scotland's capital today. [03:21]
Prince Charles and Camilla take the salute as the parade passes down the Royal Mile THE Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall received a royal salute from a parade of Navy, Army and RAF personnel in Scotland's capital today. Charles and Camilla, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, watched the final stage of the march which started at Edinburgh Castle and continued down the Royal Mile into the forecourt of the palace of Holyroodhouse. More than 100 people lined the streets at the bottom of the Royal Mile and were joined by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond, who watched the 250-strong parade pass the Scottish Parliament and into the palace grounds. Charles, who was wearing a naval admiral's uniform, and Camilla greeted people watching from the crowd and reviewed the parade on the palace forecourt before hosting a lunch reception for those involved. The food was from menus made by Scottish schoolchildren taking part in the British Food Fortnight's Cook for the Queen Diamond Jubilee competition. The competition was created by Camilla and invited all schools in the UK to create a special menu of British recipes which will be served to the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall at a reception in Buckingham Palace in June. Ahead of the parade, the Duchess met pupils from four schools taking part in the competition and donned her cooking apron to help them prepare their recipes with royal chefs in the kitchen of the palace of Holyroodhouse. Pupils from Brae ...
