  • Hoddom Castle is a large tower house, located along the River Annan in Dumfries and Galloway. ▫️ The lands of Hoddom or Hoddam belonged to the Herries family, allies of the Bruce family who were Lords of Annandale from 1124. It later passed to the Carruthers family, and then to the Maxwells. At the core of the castle is an L-plan tower house, built in the 16th century. It was probably built for Sir John Maxwell, who acquired Hoddom in the mid 16th-century when he married the heiress Agnes, Lady Herries. ▫️ In the aftermath of the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots, the Regent Moray besieged Hoddom, which capitulated after only one day. It was briefly the base of the Warden of the Scottish West March, but was recaptured in 1569 by supporters of Queen Mary. The following year it was attacked by the English under Lord Scroop, who subsequently destroyed the tower. ▫️ The tower was repaired and expanded over the following centuries by numerous owners. These included the Earl of Southesk in 1653, the Sharpe family from 1690 to 1877 and latterly the Brook family of Meltham. ▫️ The castle was requisitioned by the military during the Second World War, and was not reoccupied afterwards. ▫️ The castle now stands in the grounds of a caravan park, and the remaining 19th-century additions are used as offices. The tower house is derelict, and has been included on the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland. It is also included on Historic Scotland's Castle Conservation Register, which aims to identify buildings which could be successfully restored. ▫️ In March 2009 planning permission was granted for a redevelopment of the castle, together with the building of a hotel, chalets and a golf course. ▫️ Image by @xxsikosxx —————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #travel #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #natureaddict #thisisscotland #fortress #gameofthrones #brilliantbritain #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #discoverscotland #greatnorthcollective #modernoutdoors #conservation #restoration #ukpotd

  • We've been in our hometown for just over a month now. We're heading to #sanfrancisco this Saturday for another conference and I am so excited. . . . One of the things we've learned lately is to be grateful for what we do have around us. So we've been #exploring new places in our hometown of Windsor/Tecumseh! . . . Loving Healthy Mama #vegan and #glutenfree bistro, it's so HUGE and its within walking distance from our house! How crazy awesome is that? I never had anything like that near me growing up! What about you? How has your #hometown changed for the better?

  • Now Discovering Powys, Wales with @mjownhughes. Powys is by far the largest county in Wales. It encompasses a rugged landscape of valleys and mountains, including most of Brecon Beacons National Park, and the entire historic counties of Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire. The winters here are pristine and magical, the snow creates an atmosphere that is like out of a movie. #nowdiscovering #thediscoverer
