“Bubble-bubble toil and trouble…”
Do we have any Shakespeare fans out there? Some of you may not know that the title of the blog today is a quote from Shakespeare’s MacBeth. If you do, you may also recognize
Cawdor Castle, Scottish King Duncan’s castle from the play as well. As enthralled and dedicated as some of us may be with the literary genius of William Shakespeare, he always didn’t write with historical accuracy…….ohhh, no! LOL King Duncan did not die at the hands of Macbeth but during a battle at Pitgaveny, Scotland on August 14, 1040. Cawdor Castle was not built until the late 14th century.
On Monday June 6, 2011, we took a tour of Cawdor Castle. It was a few hours after we hunted for the
Loch Ness “Dinosaur”. It is still a real home after 700 years! The family moves
out for the spring and the summer so tourists can see the historical residence
(and get a few British Sterling Pounds as well.. woo hoo!)
As you can see by the pictures, it was quite beautiful.
Ammon and Carter had a great time. They were allowed out of their strollers and
got to experience the castle as free people…okay, except for the leashes.
What fantastic pictures of the places we only read about in Macbeth. Thanks, Haven, for sharing these pics and thanks for the pics of the children as well. They are so beautiful–so is their Nana.
I’m glad you liked the blog and the pictures, Peggy. I thought of you often during the trip.
