Nice pic. Castle Fraser in glorious monochrome?
beautiful and foreboding!! Happy WW.
Now that looks like it could be haunted, nice shot.
I’d love to tour this. It’s beautiful. I just love all your photographs. Have a great WW.
What a great shot!
NOT Castle Fraser. I feel I may have been here but then, …
Happy WW, I’ll highlite your link now.
I’ve been reading some Elizabeth Bowen, and this captures the mood exactly! Thanks!
A rather tall and thin building…gloriously shot in black and white…suits it rather well!
Beautiful picture. I love castles.
Smiles and Blessings,

Ooo, that looks cool, loads of grass and space and I bet there’s some great beds in there for me to lay on too.
I think I’ve been here. Is it “C******* C” in “A’ds****?”
I’m intrigued as to where that is. Great shot
Nice Black & White!
Wow. I really need to spend some time browsing your blog. I’m a medievalist and I think I’ve just found heaven.
It looks really cool, haunted and old, great shot as ever
Great shot… Beautiful!
I see the knights on horses and ladies peaking out the windows
Happy Wordless Wednesday
Wow, how pretty. I love the b&w. Happy WW!
I just want to run down that road! That castle is really pretty!
Great pic, makes me want to visit it.
What a great, old building.
I would love to visit a castle someday!
Wherever that is, I think I want to go there

I believe I’ve been to that castle as well, but I can’t place it.
Pretty, pretty, and makes me want to go castle-hopping…
A pretty shot as always. Happy WW.
Mmmm… Scottish castle!
My next house.
Intriguing and compelling.
Blessings to you!
Pretty! I’d trade my townhouse in for a castle any day =0
I do so enjoy your photos. Your coloring this week makes the castle a bit of a fearful structure that I’m still called toward.
If that’s your place, I’m inviting myself over. We’re automatic friends!
What a beautiful building. Intrigued to know where it is. Happy WW
Very nice photo.
I will never get sick of this castle, its lovely!
Thank you all for coming this week, and for your lovely comments.
I think this is the first time I’ve posted b&w and I’m rather pleased with it. Misslionheart, you are correct it is indeed Craigievar Castle, but jams you are partly right, Craigievar is a sister castle to Fraser. It is also haunted, Rand…but more about that in a later post. It is a very interesting place, but a little severe, and remote and I got chased around the grounds but about 60 flies trying to photograph it.
Oh, and CableGirl, you are welcome to medieval the day away with me! Btw, Claire –
That looks like a great place to go exploring!
Cool trick…very ingtriguing!
pretty. can’t wait for the story about its haunting
The answer to this week’s WW : Guess-It is up~ Head on down and take a peak and see if you won!
Hey, it’s only Friday…lol. Wonderful picture Alison. I think the black and white really brings out the details, don’t you?
ooops i thought it was the same one! my bad
I can of course see the differences now
