Dunrobin Castle is the most northerly of all Scotland's great homes
like an illustration from a story book, it seems to rise from the sea. Dunrobin is notably one of the oldest houses in Scotland that is still inhabited. The house can be traced back to the 1300's when it was the home for Earls and later too for the Duke of Sutherland and his decedents. Dunrobin has spires that reach for the skies like those found in fairytales, turrets sit perched high on a terrace above its glorious walled private gardens. Experience wonderful displays of falconry that take place daily on the perfectly manicured castle lawns.
Stirling Castle is arguably one of Scotlands historically important locations. The Stewart kings held many great celebrations here over their reign. Knights and nobles would travel from afar to behold its grandeur. Stirling has wonderful gardens and superb sculptures and was the site for many celebrations such as coronations to christenings.
A visit to Stirling Castle allows you to immerse yourself in its past splendour and atmosphere, meet many costumed characters who play the roles of court officials, maids of honour and bodyguards who will welcome you to their 16th century way of life.
Elgin, often reffered to as the "Lantern of the North". Elgin Cathedral is an impressive ruined cathedral. Many features provide evidence that this was a hub for everyday church life during medieval times.
During the early 13th century Elgin was the home of the Bishops of Moray, who previously resided at Spynie which is North of Elgin. The Bishop was allowed to relocate his domain to Elgin in 1224, and much can be traced back to that time. In 1270 fire ravaged the Cathedral and the octagonal chapter house had to be rebuilt soon after. The Cathedral escaped unscathed by the wars of independence, but suffered terribly in an attack by the son of the earl of Buchan and a gang who sacked the Cathedral and fire damaged much of it.
