The Walled-Garden at the Castle of Mey

Image
The Castle of Mey is the most northerly inhabited castle on the British mainland. It is a popular tourist attraction, and one of the landmarks on the North Coast 500 route. The castle was acquired in 1952 by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, after the death of her husband, King George VI. It was in a neglected state and likely to be abandoned, so she decided to purchase and save it from ruin. She spent many summers there for the rest of her life, and one of her pleasures was the walled garden. In this sheltered environment, with the help of her gardeners, she cultivated roses and grew vegetables, and created a lush oasis in the harsh northern climate.

Another view beside Loch More. Either a road to nowhere, or a road to peace and contemplation, depending upon your point of view!

Old Buildings at Loch More

I've probably said it before, but I love the area around Loch More in Caithness. There is such a feeling of open space and solitude, and little intrusion of man-made noise. It's also wind-swept and wild, but on a calm, sunny day there is nowhere better, in my opinion.
