Tour Scotland Jougs


Tour Scotland Jougs. These Jougs at Meikleour are easily missed as you drive through this Perthshire village. The jougs was an instrument of punishment formerly in use in Scotland. It was an iron collar fastened by a short chain to a wall, often of the parish church, or to a tree or standing stone. The collar was placed round the offender's neck and fastened by a padlock.

Tour Scotland Along With The Scottish Sheep


Tour Scotland Along With The Scottish Sheep. When driving the narrow roads of the beautiful countryside of Scotland, you will often come across sheep being moved from one location to another. Best idea is simply to pull over to the side of the road, switch off the engine of your vehicle, and let the sheep pass by. And if you are like me, you will take the opportunity to take a few photographs.

Tour Scotland Cellardyke Winter Coastline. Spent some time today, on the coast at Cellardyke, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.

Tour Scotland Holyrood Abbey


Tour Scotland Holyrood Abbey. Holyrood Abbey is a ruined Augustinian Abbey in Edinburgh, Scotland. The abbey, which is located in the grounds of the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse, which it predates, was built in 1128 at the order of King David I of Scotland. Since the fifteenth century, it has been the site of many royal coronations and marriage ceremonies. It also suffered from a number of attacks. During The Rough Wooing by Henry VIII of England, Edward Seymour as Earl of Hertford plundered the abbey in 1544, then as Protector Somerset led a raid causing great damage to the buildings. King James VII established a College of Jesuits in Holyroodhouse and had the Abbey converted in May 1688 to become a Roman Catholic chapel for the Order of the Thistle, with the Protestant congregation being moved to the new Kirk of the Canongate, then in November of that year when the Glorious Revolution brought in William II, Prince of Orange the people of Edinburgh broke in to plunder the kirk and the royal burial vaults. In 1691 the Kirk of the Canongate replaced the Abbey as the local parish church. Restoration work included the roof of the abbey being rebuilt in 1758, but the roof collapsed in a hurricane in 1768, leaving it as it currently stands, a ruin. Tour Holyrood Abbey Scotland.
