Glamis Castle, Scotland

Here are a few shots of Glamis castle near Forfar, Scotland, currently the residence of The Earl and Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne.   The castle is renowned for being the childhood home of HRH Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and the birthplace of HRH Princess Margaret.   As guided tours are the only option for exploring the interior (I prefer to explore at my own pace!),  the history of the castle and inhabitants were adequately explained, including the ghostly goings-on, which is why the castle is considered one of the most haunted in Britain.  Sadly, much to the frustration of myself and the many foreign tourists, photography of the interior was not permitted, although I did manage to sneak a single shot which is below.    On the plus side the weather on the day was untypically Scottish, so reasonable shots of the exterior were at least possible.
