Culross Abbey Fife Scotland [00:39]
Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of the ruins of Culross Abbey on visit to West Fife. This Scottish abbey was founded in 1217 by Malcolm I, Earl of Fife, and was first colonised by monks from Kinloss Abbey. The original 13th century abbey was cruciform in plan, without aisles. By the late 15th century the lay brothers had left, and the abbey community consisted of only choir-monks. The western half of the abbey was therefore abandoned, and the nave was demolished around 1500. In 1633 the east choir of the abbey was taken over for use as a parish church, while the adjoining buildings fell into decay. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.

Edzell Castle Angus Scotland [01:29]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of Edzell Castle on on visit to Angus. A ruined 16th century Scottish castle, with an early 17th century walled garden. Edzell Castle was begun around 1520 by David Lindsay, 9th Earl of Crawford, and expanded by his son, Sir David Lindsay, Lord Edzell, who also laid out the garden in 1604. The castle saw little military action, and was, in its design, construction and use, more of a country house than a defensive structure. It was briefly occupied by English troops during Oliver Cromwell's invasion of Scotland in 1651. In 1715 it was sold by the Lindsay family, and eventually came into the ownership of the Earl of Dalhousie. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
