Ecobird has replied to Martin Hogarth
Thank you very much Martin. I haven't been inside the castle for years and it wasn't National Trust then. The grounds are beautiful though. Worth a visit as you say, but I think Dunster is a delightful old place. I loved the atmosphere when we went there for the 'Dunster by Candlelight' weekend too.

Ecobird has replied to Christiane
Thank you very much dear Christiane. Much appreciated. No, not Scotland but right down in Somerset, but I can understand why you might think it was Scotland. It is a pretty little village steeped in history and has a lovely old building that was a yarn market in the main street

Heehee Carol, we use to fly this flag too, until February 14, 1965, but on February 15, 1965, Canada started to fly its own flag! Last year was our flag's 50th anniversary, and to me, it doesn't seen that long ago! An awesome photo capture of this beautiful castle, and it seems to be nestled in a very nice surrounding! Such a wonderful presentation too!
