Duntulm Castle - HFF Everyone - Have a good weekend

I have added 'Walls' by Tom Petty as my first link

The castle ruins are wide open to the elements so I have added the second Tom Petty link

I see why they put the castle there - great view of the sea, and on the off day, invaders. They forgot the maintenance expense.

Ecobird has replied to Ronald Losure
Thank you very much Ronald. Really appreciated. This was the home of the MacDonalds of Sleat, but it was abandoned around 1732. Local legend has it that the baby son of the chieftain at the time fell from the castle to his death on the rocks below. When his son died Alexander built a new home using building materials from the castle. He was also said to have set the nursemaid adrift in a small boat as a punishment

What a gorgeous place and view and such a nice tribute to Tom Petty.

I've never heard the second song and really liked it. Come to think of it, I've never heard a song from him that I haven't liked. Thank you.

HFF, Carol. :)

Wonderful coastal scene )have ever been there)
HFF and a nice weekend Carol.
9 months ago.
Ecobird has replied to Jaap van 't Veen
Thank you very much Jaap. Really appreciated. It is a beautiful area, but if the local legends are true the castle had a sad history with the clan chief of the MacDonalds losing his infant son when he fell from the castle on to the rocks. He punished the nursemadi who was supposed to be looking after the child by casting her adrift in a small boat. He abandoned the castle, building another house using building materials from the castle. HFF and have a good weekend

il est dans un piteux état ce château mais c'est une superbe vue
9 months ago.
Ecobird has replied to Kama 56
It is sad to see it in such a state Although it was built a long time ago it would appear that some of the materials were used to build a new home for the clan chief who lived here. His small son had died in an accident after falling from the castle walls. I guess this would be one of the reasons it is in this condition. Thank you very much and have a lovely Sunday.

Kama 56 has replied to Ecobird
Parfois malheureusement, les vieux châteaux servent de carrière pour les pierres et construire autre chose.

C'est très joli, la photographie traduit bien l'atmosphère de cette légende. La disparition de Tom Petty est une triste nouvelle, j'ai eu la chance de le voir en France en première partie d'un concert rare de Bob Dylan à Paris, c'était assez exceptionnel. Vos photographies sont toujours pleine d'émotion.
