Tour Ballinbreich Castle Scotland

Spent the morning visiting a friend in North Fife, Scotland. The ruins of Ballinbreich Castle can be seen from the road, almost three miles east of Newburgh on a steep bank on the southern shore overhanging the Firth of Tay. The ruins stand on private property but it was originally with the ancient Abernathy family before it passed by marriage to the Earls of Rothes. The Earls of Rothes took from it the title Baron Ballinbreich. Ballinbreich is a Celtic word which comes from of Balan-breac, meaning "town of trout". This is of course a reference to the salmon to be found in the waters there. Tour Fife.

    Well done Sandy for spotting this gem of North Fife. Many people pass without knowing what this pile of stones are, some do of course but without picturing it.
