10. Kilchurn Castle, located on Loch Awe and set against the backdrop of the mountains of Tyndrum
Kilchurn Castle was built around 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy. The land on which the castle stands had been granted to Colin in 1432 to ensure his loyalty following the sudden death of his elder brother, Gillespic. Colin’s descendants, the Campbells of Glenorchy (later earls of Breadalbane), were the most powerful of the numerous cadets of Clan Campbell. Indeed, there were times when this branch almost rivalled the clan chiefs, the earls of Argyll, for supremacy.
Similar to many other castles, Kilchurn was subject to the changing political climate of early modern British politics. It was fortified into modern barracks capable of housing 200 troops by Sir John Campbell during the English Restoration. During the Jacobite rebellions of the early 18th century the castle acted as a government garrison. The Glenorchy-Campbell family continued to own the castle until around 1760. It was abandoned after being permanently damaged by a devastating lightning strike. It then remained largely undisturbed, as it fell apart due to decades of neglect.
Today, Kilchurn is in the care of Historic Environment Scotland. Although it stands open to the elements, several wooden staircases and walkways built into its fabric allow visitors to climb the original five-story tower and other parapets
11. Today we are showing us the great culture of Scotland
Scotland’s staple drink, like England’s, is tea, drunk strong and with milk, though coffee is just as readily available everywhere.

12. Balintore Castle, Scotland
It was designed in 1859 by the architect William Burn. A typical example of the Scottish Baronial style, it features an abundance of turreted towers and gables, and a gone oriel window. The main tower is topped by a balustraded viewing platform similar to that of Buchanan Castle.
Balintore Castle was commissioned as a sporting lodge by David Lyon, MP, who had inherited a fortune made by his family through investments in the East India Company. Latterly the castle was used only during the shooting season.
In the 1960s it was decided not to repair the extensive dry rot, and it was abandoned. The castle then stood empty until 2007, during which time its condition deteriorated to point of endangering the structure. Balintore Castle has been listed in the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland since it started in 1990. Angus Council used its compulsory purchase powers to buy it from its absentee Far Eastern owners, and it is now in the hands of a Scotsman who is restoring it and residing there.

14. Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, Scotland
Castle Sinclair Girnigoe is located about 3 miles north of Wick on the east coast of Caithness, Scotland. It is considered to be one of the earliest seats of Clan Sinclair.
It comprises the ruins of two castles: the 15th-century Castle Girnigoe; and the early 17th-century Castle Sinclair.
The earlier Castle Girnigoe was built by William Sinclair, 2nd Earl of Caithness, probably sometime between 1476 and 1496, but certainly before his death at the Battle of Flodden in 1513. There is some evidence to suggest that the castle was built on the foundations of an earlier fortalice.
15. Framing the fury and finesse of Iceland's waterfalls
The end of the Sigöldugljúfur canyon. Such an incredible location to take in. The entire span of this section is less than a half mile long.
16. Glymur Iceland with a view
One of my top 5 hikes for sure is the trail up to Glymur. I leads over a river, through a cave, along a massive canyon and then through the ice cold stream on top. It’s steep, short but sweet and comes with such incredible views. We’ve hiked the area in every season but summer is by far the best (and most of the trail is not accessible for the rest of the year). You can drink straight out of the streams and if you fancy a good old cold plunge - bring your swimsuit. We went in last September and it was so worth it!
