Autumn View Kinnaird Castle Perthshire Scotland October 29th [00:35]
Tour Scotland Autumn video of Kinnaird Castle on visit to the Carse of Gowrie, Perthshire. This Scottish castle was built as a frontier castle to protect the Carse of Gowrie and its people against the Highlanders. It is a royal castle and is reputed to have been built in 1107. The Kinnaird family lived in the castle from the mid-twelfth century. In 1449, due to a misunderstanding between two hot-tempered Scots, involving the death of a member of the Douglas Clan, Kinnaird was besieged by the Douglas Clan, who managed to break in, loot and wreck the castle. Most of the castle had to be rebuilt in 1450. A lot of the castle fabric today dates from 1450. The basement area dates back to earlier periods. John Kinnaird of that ilk (15th Laird of Kinnaird) was obliged to sell the family estates of Kinnaird. He resigned the lands and barony of Kinnaird into the hands of the King James I & VI, who, on 26th March 1618, granted them to John Livingston, a Gentleman of the Kings Bedchamber. The castle passed to the Colvilles, who in turn, passed it to the Threipland family in 1674. After some years of occupancy, Kinnaird was abandoned. In 1854, three ladies took pity on the derelict castle and spent a fortune in repairs. In due course, the place was again bought by the Threiplands.
Beauly priory. Inverness-shire [02:50]
Beauly Priory was a Valliscaullian monastic community located at "Insula de Achenbady" now Beauly, Inverness-shire. it was probably founded in 1230. It is not known for certain who the founder was, different sources giving Alexander 11 of Scotland, John Byset, and both. The French monks, along with Bisset (a nearby, recently settled landowner), had a strong enough French-speaking presence to give the location and the river the name "beau lieu" (beautiful place") and have it pass into English. It is not the best documented abbey, and few of the priors of Beauly are known by name until the 14th century. It became Cistercian on April 16th, 1510, after the suppression of the Valliscaulian Order by the Pope. The priory was gradually secularized, and ruled by a series of commendators. The priory's lands were given over to the bishop of Ross by royal charter on October 20, 1634. The ruins today are still extensive and are one of the main visitor attractions in Inverness-shire.
