Darnaway Castle, Moray, Scotland by 


There has been a castle of some kind on this site at Darnaway since Pictish times. The Earldom of Moray was granted by Robert the Bruce in the 1300s and the castle was given to the Stuart family in 1502. The 20th Earl is now in his eighties. His son, Lord Doune, lives with his family in the castle now, as their private home and it is rarely seen by the public. In fact there is scarcely any information about it on the web. The castle today is largely a castellated mansion built in 1810 onto the much earlier Randolph’s Hall. Randolph’s Hall is a vast imposing space with an incredible and very rare, dark oak hammerbeam roof. The castle houses an impressive collection of artworks and portraits, many by VanDyke with some by Raeburn, Turner and others and is surrounded by thousands of acres of park and woodland.

The scenery of Scotland, especially the Highlands where I have lived, in Inverness, for the past 35 years, is my passion but I love photographing many other subjects as well. I hope you enjoy any of my photographs that you buy and they give you as much pleasure to look at as I have in taking them. Thank you. Please note that I do NOT give permission to pin, post or use my images in any way and retain full copyright of them.
