Castles Dunrobin and Mey

United Kingdom | Thursday, 7 June 2018 | 12 photos

We left Inverness and drove northward to Thurso. On the way, we stopped at Dunrobin Castle (http://www.dunrobincastle.co.uk) to enjoy the architecture, gardens, and falconry exhibition. Then, we hurried on to Thurso and were the last entry of the day to the Castleof Mey (https://www.castleofmey.org.uk), the property of the Queen Mum since 1952 (although it's been held by a Trust since 1996). This castle is different than most since the Queen Mum lived there -- it has a homey, personal feel that is reaffirmed by the guides (one of whom was on the Queen Mum's staff).
