Lieutenant General Robert Stuart Tomb Kilspindie Perthshire Scotland [00:48]
Tour Scotland video of the Lieutenant General Robert Stuart Tomb on visit to Kilspindie Church graveyard in Perthshire. General Robert Stuart, 1st of Annat in Rait, was born on 13th of May, 1744 in Powblack Farm, Doune, Kilmadock, Scotland. He died on the 18th of February, in 1820 in England. Robert served as a commander in the army of the East India Company and actively recruited many of his Stewart cousins into service with the East India Company. Robert became extremely wealthy from the East India Company and was arguably the most financially successful of all the Baldorran Stewarts. In his later years he provided pensions for several of his widowed and spinster cousins, including the sisters of John Stewart, 5th and last of Annat, who was a drunk and sold the family estate of Annat in Kilmadock. General Robert Stuart acquired the estate of Rait in the Carse of Gowrie in southeast Perthshire. He named his residence there, Annat, after his ancestral home near Doune. As the original line of Stewart of Annat had been sold, General Robert Stuart had the arms re-matriculated and became 1st of Annat in Rait. On the family tomb in the churchyard is a plaque written in Persian, the court language of the Moghul Empire: " The Support of the State, Helper of the Kingdom General Robert Stuart, Behadur War a Veritable Sword of Mohammed A Faithful Servant of Shah Alam Ghazi 1212 AH (1834 AD)"

Stuart McNair Climb's Arthur's Seat, Scotland [06:24]
Climbing the mighty Arthur's Seat, overlooking Edinburgh, the Capital of Scotland. I accidentally call it "Calton Hill" in the video, which is a smaller summit nearby. This is during August 2012, festival season, in which I played the Festival of Spirituality and Peace, Fringe Fest, Little Fest, and Pubs including Malone's and Lebowski's.

This week in.....North West Scotland: Beauty on my doorstep! [18:22]
My love affair with Scotland goes all the way back to the days I was a wee tearaway boy - and has stayed with me ever since. Though these days, mummy doesnt need to know I'm going off into the wilderness! For me, theres no place more beautiful on this earth and this 7 day adventure show cases the very best of the Scottish landscape, history and legacy. I still cant believe we fitted all this in just 7 days! I really needed a break to recover! Featuring: the worlds only scheduled flight to land on a beach (Barra) and my very first car crash! (yes, this really was caught on video!)
