We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LOCATION | Kilchurn Castle, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ARTIST | @johnny.stills ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>swipe to see the drone footage😍 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> There are few more scenic castles in Scotland than Kilchurn near Dalmally in Argyll. Built on a small, rocky isthmus joined to the shore at the tip of Loch Awe, it's one of numerous castles erected by the powerful Campbell clan, who exercised control of much of western Scotland in the late medieval period. Don't miss the view from the top - stand on the tower house's battlements and gaze out over Loch Awe, with the peak of Ben Cruachan in the backdrop. It's easily one of the most photographed castles in Scotland! In 1760, the castle was badly damaged by lightning and was completely abandoned; the remains of a turret of a tower, still resting upside-down in the centre of the courtyard, attest to the violence of the storm. The castle was unroofed by 1770. J M W Turner painted d the castle on one of his tours of Scotland in the early 19th century. In 1817 the water level in Loch Awe was altered, so that the castle now stands on a long peninsula. MacGibbon and Ross surveyed the castle in about 1887, after which restoration works appear to have altered some of the castle's original features. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #KilchurnCastle #Kilchurn #Lochawe #Dalmally #Argyll #argyllandbute #scottishcastles_ #scotland #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #worldwide_castles #medievalcastle #medieval #ancientcastle

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. 📸 | @eddiefitz7 📌 | Inveraray Castle, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ——————————————— Beautiful Inveraray Castle on the shore of Loch Fyne, Scotland’s longest sea loch. It is one of the earliest examples of Gothic Revival architecture and has been the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, chiefs of Clan Campbell, since the 18th century. Work on it began in 1743. This castle replaced an earlier 15th-century castle. Originally, all the roofs were flat and crenellated. Later, a third floor with pitched roof and dormer windows was added on all four wings and steep conical roofs were added on top of the four round towers. The village of Inveraray was moved in the 1770s to give the castle a more secluded setting. Good old times for aristocrats...🙄. In 1975 a devastating fire struck Inveraray and for some time the 12th Duke and his family lived in the castle's basement during the restoration. The current 13th Duke and his family - his wife is part of the wealthy but not noble Cadbury’s chocolate family btw - live in private apartments occupying two floors and set between two of the four crenellated circular towers. The castle is open for visitors. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #InverarayCastle #Inveraray #Argyllandbute #scottishcastles_ #scottishcastles #castlesinscotland #yourcastlesnaps #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #medieval #fortheloveofscotland #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #instascotland #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #worldwide_castles #thecastlesofscotland #map_of_europe

Su actual estado de ruina, sin embargo, suscita en quien la contempla la preocupación por el inminente peligro de derrumbe que padece, evidenciando la poca estima que las administraciones competentes parecen profesar hacia nuestro patrimonio histórico, así como el escaso celo que aplican en su conservación.

The Haches tower (Bogarra, Albacete, Spain), from the Almohad age, has given for eight centuries an evocative and historical brushstroke to the mountain landscape of this land, highlighting it with that epic shape. The gate is continuously guarded by a figurative faithfull gatekeeper in the form of a pine tree that casts its shadow over the entrance. The current dilapidated state of this tower raises the concern about the severe and imminent danger of total collapse to which this historic monument is exposed, a clear mark of inefficiency on the part of the responsible administration, evidencing the disdain for our historical heritage and the total lack of zeal for its conservation from it.

Old Castle of Wick is one of the oldest Castles in Scotland. Probably built in ca. 1160. The place of the castle is on a finger of a rock and over the rough sea. It retains a striking and dramatic presence. A must see place in the north of Scotland. . .

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ARTIST | @nichbrand LOCATION | Midhope Castle, Scotland ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Posted @withrepost@nichbrand Dreich day...so, I dared to visit Midhope Castle...and I was right, had it to myself...no big buses and masses of other visitors 😊 The derelict Midhope Castle is a 16th-century tower house of five storeys and a garret, to which has been added a later and lower wing.  Mentioned in a document of 1438, it would seem that John Martyne/Martin built the original castle and remained as laird until his death in 1478. The original building may still partly survive in the arched basement floor of the tower. In 1478 it passed over to a Henry Levingstone/Livingstone. Then Midhope belonged to the Drummonds of Midhope, who were in possession during part of the 16th and 17th centuries, and Alexander Drummond of Midhope remodelled the tower in 1587. His initials with those of his wife Marjorie Bruce are on a former lintel now above a gateway. In 1678 the castle was acquired by John Hope, incorporating it within the Hopetoun Estate. He raised the height of the existing eastern section and added two more bays on the end.  In 1710 the place was described as ‘a fine towerhouse with excellent gardens, one of the seats of the Earls of Hopetoun’. Midhope Castle was used to house farm workers after the building of nearby Hopetoun House. Around 1890 it was inhabited by ‘Pensioners of the Hopetoun Family’, and by 1926 it had been subdivided to provide accommodation for estate workers. The 1926 record describes the building as already being in poor condition. A survey of 1929 reported a fine oak staircase with  twisted balusters ‘now sadly dilapidated’ rising in the east rage from the first to fourth floors. By the 1950s it was derelict and decaying fast. Some good quality wall paintings were discovered but sadly all were already lost by the time restoration work commenced in 1988 when it was a ruinous, windowless shell. The roof was fixed and the window frames filled but sadly nothing more has been done till the present day. You only can visit the exteriors.

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ARTIST | @eddiefitz7 LOCATION | CRAIGIEVAR CASTLE, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This seven-story castle with its pink-tinted facade, finely sculpted multiple turrets, ornate corbels and carved stonework is said to have been an inspiration for Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle. ⛰Nestled on a picturesque hillside in the eastern foothills of the Cairngorm mountains, the elegant pink tower of Craigievar Castle is spellbindingly beautiful, sure to enchant children and adults alike (and even Queen Victoria, once upon a time!). This iconic tower house is among the best preserved and the most loved in Scotland. 🏰Construction of this castle begun in the Scottish Baronial style around 1576 and its exterior remains virtually unchanged since William Forbes completed it around 1626. Craigievar was a family home until the 1960s, creating a quirky blend of cosy interiors and rare antiquities within the ancient walls. 💞In 1824, Sir John Smith inherited the castle when his older brother passed away. He had the roof replaced and the building reharled. Aberdeen architect, John Smith, suggested that they add pigments to the harling (an exterior building-surfacing technique which results in a weatherproof shield) so that it more closely resembled the pink granite colour of the stone detailing. This resulted in a distinctly pink colouration. Up until then, however, the castle was cream in colour. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #CraigievarCastle #Craigievar #Alford #Aberdeenshire #scotland #scottishcastles_ #scottishcastles #castlesinscotland #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #ancientcastle #castlephotography #worldwide_castles #map_of_europe #medieval

Hoensbroek Castle Deep in the south, next to Heerlen, lies the most impressive castle in Limburg, Kasteel Hoensbroek in Hoensbroek. With its many towers, its various forecourts and its extensive system of canals, this castle is the perfect picture of a feudal world, which almost belongs more to a German or French town. In the thirteenth century there must have been a fortified house here. The round tower is the only remnant of a new castle that was built around 1360 by Herman Hoen. At the bottom of the tower is the former prison. Most of the present house was built around 1640 in the style of the Meuse Renaissance according to plans by Matthieu Dousin or Dosin from Vise'. In the first half of the eighteenth century, Frans Arnold Adriaan van Hoensbroek, the lord of the castle, had the north-western wing, to the right of the entrance, built on medieval foundations. Writer and poet Bertus Aafjes described the castle as follows: I walked around it, knee-deeply wading through the high pasture grass, half surprised, half delighted that I lived there. If you live in the rooms of a castle everything seems so normal in the long run. But one takes some distance, if only the distance from the neighbouring meadow, then one immediately sees the silhouette of the whole again with the eyes of a stranger.'. 📸 @dutch_castle_hunter @kasteelhoensbroek

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 📍| TANTALLON CASTLE, Scotland🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Set on the edge of the cliffs, looking out to the Bass Rock, this formidable castle was a stronghold of the Douglas family. William Douglas, a nobleman, built the mighty fortress at the height of his power in the mid-1300s. Built before the age of gunpowder artillery, Tantallon’s thick walls defended against stone-throwing machines called trebuchets, battering rams, and even bows and arrows. It was the last great castle built in Scotland. • The curtain wall once enclosed the entire site (its seaward side has since fallen down) but the castle only needed formidable defences on its landward side at the time. 📸 | @lucas_owc ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #TantallonCastle #Northberwich #Scottishcastles_ #Scotland #castlesinscotland #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #fortheloveofscotland #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #instascotland #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #worldwide_castles #medievalcastle #medieval #ancientcastle

"El final del viaje" / "Journey's End" (La Malladeta, Villajoyosa, Costa Blanca, Alicante, Spain) . . Una intemporal vista del promontorio frente al mar do se halla la Torre de la Malladeta de Villajoyosa (Alicante), construída en 1912 por el psiquiatra y político Dr.José María Esquerdo, en estilo historicista, evocando la apariencia de las torres vigías que, desde el siglo XVI, venían utilizándose para alertar de los ataques de los piratas berberiscos. Aunque su estado es de total abandono y su interior está completamente derruido, continúa aportando a este paraje, con su evocadora silueta, un toque épico que casi diríase propio de los cuentos de fantasía. . . -English: . . A timeless picture of the promontory in front of the sea where Malladeta tower is located in Villajoyosa (Alicante). It was built in 1912 by politician and psychiatrist Dr. José María Esquerdo, in a historicist style, evoking the appearance of the coastal watchtowers that, since the 16th century, had been used for providing early warning of the frequent Berber pirates attacks. Although its condition is of complete abandonment and his interior is wholly ruined, this tower continues providing an epic touch with its evocative figure to this place, that almost looks like it was taken out of a fantasy fairy tale. . . . © Francisco García Ríos 2019- All Rights Reserved / Reservados todos los derechos. . . #lamalladeta #villajoyosa #CostaBlanca #ComunidadValenciana #Alicante #total_alicante #alicantefirst #mediterraneancitizenstory #ProvinciadeAlicante #total_mediterraneo #vivacostablanca #igersalicante #descubrelavila #igersspain #igersalbacete #Recesvintus #igerscomunitat #ok_spain #espacio_spain #total_spain #españagrafias #bestspainpics #asi_es_miplaneta #spain_in_bl #peregrinomundial #total_heights #castlesofspain #castles_oftheworld #worldwide_castles #EuropeCastles

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 📸 | @scottmac_ 📍 | Bothwell Castle, Glasgow 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bothwell Castle is one of medieval Scotland’s outstanding monuments. Walter of Moray’s aristocratic family acquired the land on which Bothwell Castle stands in 1242. Either he or his son William – known as ‘the Rich’ – began the mighty castle in a spectacular display of power. Bothwell endured a major siege in August 1301, when the Wars of Independence were at their height. Edward I of England – ‘Hammer of the Scots’ – brought 6,800 soldiers to the castle. A huge siege engine called ‘le berefrey’ (‘the belfry’) was hauled from Glasgow. The tall siege tower had ladders inside to allow the attackers to fight their way onto the castle battlements. The garrison surrendered within the month. After the wars, Bothwell passed to another powerful noble family – the Black Douglases. They added an impressive array of fine quality architecture in their own show of power. The Crown seized the castle after the Black Douglases’ downfall in 1455. Bothwell’s history ever since has been relatively uneventful. • • #bothwellcastle #bothwell #clydeandayrshire #droneshot #droneofficial #droneoftheday #scotland #moodynature #scottishcastles_ #scottishcastles #castlesinscotland #yourcastlesnaps #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #fortheloveofscotland #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #instascotland #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #worldwide_castles

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 📸 | @jaypn.11 📍 | Caerlaverock Castle, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With its moat, twin towered gatehouse and imposing battlements, this awe-inspiring castle is the epitome of the medieval stronghold and one of the finest castles in Scotland. Although ruined, Caerlaverock is still a substantial structure and you can explore many different features within its unique triangular ground plan. Caerlaverock’s triangular shape is unique among British castles. A walk around the castle gives a sense of its strength, economy of form and pleasing geometry. Three lengths of defensive curtain wall are linked at their three angles by high corner towers. On the north side is an impressive twin-towered gatehouse, where the Maxwells had their private rooms. The Maxwells repaired and upgraded Caerlaverock over the years. The impressive machicolations (slotted defences) at the top of each tower date from the late 1300s or early 1400s – by which time the Wars of Independence with England had taken their toll. Inside the castle walls is the remarkable Nithsdale Lodging, built in the 1630s by Robert Maxwell, 1st Earl of Nithsdale. Its attractive façade, with its ornate Renaissance stone carvings, is a sharp contrast to the severe castle walls. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #Caerlaverockcastle #caerlaverock #dumfries #scotland #moodynature #scottishcastles_ #scottishcastles #castlesinscotland #yourcastlesnaps #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #fortheloveofscotland #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #instascotland #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #worldwide_castles
