The whitewashed castle by LordLJCornellPhotos The whitewashed castle by LordLJCornellPhotos
This is Corgarff Castle in Aberdeenshire, Eastern Scotland. It is from the mid 15th Century and the star shaped perimeter wall was added in the 17th Century when it became a military base.

Used to be a whisky distillery at one point in time, too :)

Going to the area on Monday. I think I'll drop by the castle this time. Have always just passed by.

That's right. After it stopped being a military base :)
It was an enjoyable visit. It's not huge but I always love to look round a castle :)

Like made out of snow...
An amazing photograph, dear friend. :hug:

I noticed that the architecture in Iceland is very "simple" in general.

After a year of backbreaking work, the painter finally showed the finished article to the Lord and Lady of the castle, only for the Lady to turn round and say, "I think it would look better in red!"
The painters reply was not recorded in history, but as you can plainly see, the Castle is clearly still painted white.

Funnily enough, not too far from here on the East Coast there is a Red Castle. :)
