Daffodils Kellie Castle East Neuk Of Fife Scotland [00:39]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of daffodils at Kellie Castle on visit to the East Neuk of Fife. This Scottish castle is located near Arncroach, about three miles north of Pittenweem. The earliest records of Kellie go back to 1150 where it is mentioned in a charter issued by King David I. The first known owner was Robert of London, the illegitimate son of King William the Lion. By 1266 Kellie had passed to the Siward family, who had hailed from Northumbria and had assisted King Malcolm Canmore to overthrow Macbeth. The estate was signed over to a Siward relative, Walter Oliphant, in 1360 and the castle remained in the ownership of the Oliphant family until 1613. It was purchased by Sir Thomas Erskine, who had saved the life of King James VI during the Gowrie Conspiracy by killing Sir Alexander Ruthven. The King stayed at Kellie in 1617 during his only visit to Scotland after the Union of the Crowns, and he appointed Erskine as Earl of Kellie in 1619. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.

Torphichen Preceptory West Lothian Scotland September 7th [00:42]
Tour Scotland video of the exterior of Torphichen Preceptory in West Lothian. In the 5th century St Ninian brought the Christian faith to West Lothian Scotland and built there a small chapel in the village of Torphichen. Seven centuries later the Knights of St. John established their Scottish headquarters, or preceptory, at Torphichen and incorporated the St Ninian's chapel into their newly constructed Norman church in 1168. As a result the Knights dedicated the building to their founder, John the Baptist, while dedicating one of its side altars to St Ninian. Little remains now of the original Preceptory, save for the transept, chancel and tower.

Tower Trail [05:22]
Clackmannanshire's collection of tower houses (dating from the 14th and 15th century) were built by Scotland 's aristocrats to be near the royal court at Stirling Castle . Each tower, has it's own fascinating history, and formed part of a wider complex of buildings, including great halls, courtyards and living quarters. Being so close to the royal court, these tower houses played host to royalty including Mary Queen of Scots, witnessed the plotting of the ill fated Jacobite Rebellion of 1715 led by the 6th Earl of Mar, and came under attack and were damaged by fire as a result of war and dispute over the centuries. Menstrie Castle Menstrie Castle was built c1560 as a manor house by the Alexander family. It was the birthplace of Sir William Alexander, who had an illustrious career during the reign of James VI and I, becoming Principle Secretary of State for Scotland in 1626. In 1621 he began to establish a new colony called Nova Scotia , but the scheme failed and Sir William lost money. Nonetheless, he improved Menstrie Castle and his town house in Stirling in 1633, when he was invested 1st Earl of Stirling and Viscount Canada . Neglected for a number of years, Menstrie Castle was saved during the late 1950's and converted into apartments, but two ground floor rooms were restored as a display area, with dedicated exhibitions about Nova Scotia . These are now managed by the National Trust for Scotland . Open: Wed and Sun 2.00pm - 5.00pm (1st April - 30th September ...
