  • Tolquhon Castle was built during the early 15th century by Sir Henry Preston. The main feature was a Tower House which was surrounded by a barmkin (curtain wall) enclosing the ancillary buildings such as brewhouse, bakehouse and stables. Sir Henry died in 1420 without leaving a male heir and his estates were subsequently divided between his daughters. ▫️ Tolquhon Castle passed through his second daughter, Marjorie, to her husband, Sir John Forbes. It would remain with his family for almost 300 years. ▫️ The castle was rebuilt by William Forbes between 1584 and 1589. After his death Tolquhon Castle passed to his son, William. Further upgrades to the castle were planned but were never enacted nor were any additional modifications made by any of his successors, although the surrounding gardens were re-landscaped in the late 17th century. ▫️ It was during this period that the Forbes rose in prominence under the Stewart monarchs. Alexander Forbes had saved the life of Charles II during the Battle of Worcester (1651) and, after the Restoration of the monarchy, was knighted. The family remained loyal to the Stewarts even after the Glorious Revolution and accordingly the then owner, William Forbes, supported the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion. Parliament declared his estates forfeit in 1716 but he refused to vacate and had to be forcibly evicted in September 1718. ▫️ Tolquhon Castle ceased to be a high status residence at this time and was eventually purchased by the Earl of Aberdeen to use as a farm house. It continued in this role until the early 19th century and thereafter was allowed to drift into ruin. ▫️ Image by @ajacks321 ——————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #folkscenery #scotland_greatshots #master_shots #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #dronestagram #thisisscotland #travelphotography #scotspirit #brilliantbritain #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #abandonedplaces #instscotland #abandoned_excellence #visituk #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #lovegreatbritain #dronephotography

  • J'avoue qu'aujourd'hui il faisait un peu froid pour faire tous les jardins de Vaux-le-Vicomte... @chateauvlv 😅 . Il n'empêche qu'ils sont très importants... Pensés, organisés et créés par André Le Notre 🌳 . Ils sont le fondement des jardins à la française 🤗 . Perspective parfaitement maîtrisée, fontaines, bassins, illusions d'optiques... 💎 . Les jardins de Versailles feront bien plus que simplement s'inspirer car c'est André Le Notre lui même qui se mettra à la tâche 🍃 . Le roi Louis XIV s'entourera du trio : Le Notre, Le Vau, Le Brun comme l'avait fait Nicolas Fouquet... 🌸 . Vous préférez les jardins à la française ou à l'anglaise ? 🤔 . #vlv #vauxlevicomte #chateau #castle #france #landscape #histoire #history #culture #art #french #versailles #paris #musée #museum #art #exhibition
