Balvenie castle & the Glen Fiddich distillery by 

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 17-70 lens at 50mm, F11, shutter speed 1/80, ISO100, tweaked in Photoshop

Another shot taken on my recent trip to the Scottish Highlands, the photograph was taken 10 minutes away from our cottage. On the left of the shot is the wonderfully preserved Balvenie castle, on the right is the Glen Fiddich distillery.

Balvenie castle was built in the 12th century by the Comyn Clan (the Black Comyns) and extended in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The castle fell into the ownership of the House of Douglas in the early 14th century when the Comyns were reduced by Robert the Bruce. In turn King James II wiped out the Douglases and it was granted to John Stewart, the first Earl of Atholl. Balvenie Castle served as a garrison during the Jacobite rebellion. It was abandoned in 1720s but was last used by the Hanovarian forces of the Crown (under the Duke of Cumberland) leading up to the Battle of Culloden.
