Glamis Castle - Scotland

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Glamis Castle - Scotland
Glamis Castle - Scotland
F/8, s1/125, iso100
Another view of Glamis, this time in colour, the late Queen Mother's childhood home. We were not allowed to take photos inside unfortunately, wish I could have had a picture of the main dining room, it was awesome! Incredible ceilings with the family crests, a huge ornate fireplace, family portraits, and an enormous silver galleon as the centrepiece on the table - they rent the room out for weddings so if anyone is planning to get married....:)

Thanks Goshka, well they had centuries of practice in Scotland :) - this one was started in the 14th century, and had several wings added on with different generations of the family.

Another lovely photo Ann. I think you and I saw very different sides to Scotland but it seems to be that all sides sparkle!

Love the framing on this beautiful view, Ann!! Glamis is a great castle indeed! Do they still have peacocks walking around there?

Thanks Debbie, Shelly, Mary and Jenny -No I didn't see any peacocks. Both times that I have visited this castle they were holding their annual vintage car show, though, with crowds of people there. I had to clone out a few in this photo!

Such a beautiful castle!
Wonderful construction and design along with your excellent composition.
Question: If one has a wedding there, do they still not allow indoor photos?

Thank you Ermanno, Linda, Bill & Terry - it really is a beautiful place, incredible and priceless works of art, decor and history. I didn't think to ask about photos being taken of a wedding party! I think they use the photo ban as a means to make more money, as they sell a very nice glossy brochure with pictures of the interior in it.

Lovely composition on this Ann ~ what a place to grow up in... surely must have a few resident ghosts ~ lol!

I had the same thought as Bill on the photo taking ~ does seem a little strange as it is hired out for weddings?

This is a outstanding shot, I took a tour of this castel about 3 years ago, loved it. One can only wonder what it would be like to live in it.
