Thank you very much, Sylvia.
Excellent shot from a different angle. I took a picture of the castle two years ago when it was completely surrounded & encased by blue-green scaffolding – called it ‘The Ardvreck Holiday Inn’ as it had that Little Windows look. The Montrose in question, James Graham (1612-1650) was not the Duke but the 5th Earl & 1st Marquis of Montrose. The Dukes came later. Unhappy history in any case involving major breach in Highland Hospitality Ethics.
Many thanks, artwhiz47 – and for the fav. Thanks also for the artwatch. Welcome to RB.
