It has a thin, sweeping body, stubby legs, a curiously long tail and a round eye set in a square head. This is the Uffington White Horse, the oldest of the English hill figures.

In praise of the Norfolk coast: big skies, sandy beaches and subtle beauty

I stood on its great banks of flowery chalk grassland, alone, and watched the sun disappear, two barn owls and a tawny owl the only other living presences in the landscape. It was a tranquil experience but also unexpectedly exhilarating. I felt I had slipped through conventional time; I didn’t come face-to-face with Boudicca exactly, but the past felt unusually present: mysterious, powerful, unsettling. The north Norfolk coast is feted for its big skies and generous sandy beaches but this young coastline – still coming to terms with the last ice age – is also home to the most ancient of human traces.

Que faire pendant un road trip en Écosse ? Les plus beaux paysages. Attiré depuis de nombreuses années par l’Écosse, je suis finalement parti deux semaines en septembre 2019 pour explorer ses routes brumeuses et ses lochs, tout aussi nombreux que ses châteaux qui hantent les divers recoins des Highlands. Depuis un pub d’Elgin à chanter le mythique Flower of Scotland, en passant par Skye et sa distillerie mais également par les lochs majestueux, je vous partage ici mes coups de cœur et quelques découvertes.

En espérant que cela vous donne envie de découvrir ces paysages parfois isolés mais jamais réellement inhabités 😉.

Kilchurn Castle Feature Page on Undiscovered Scotland. Many Scottish castles tell the story of the changing times they lived through. It is quite common to find a castle that started life as a stronghold before being converted over the years to first a comfortable, then a showcase, home: or which was abandoned in favour of a nearby fine house when the struggle of conversion became too much trouble, and defence was no longer a priority. Kilchurn Castle evolved in a slightly different way. It was built in about 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy, and it started life as a five storey tower house with a courtyard defended by an outer wall.

By about 1500 an additional range and a hall had been added to the south side of the castle. Further buildings went up during the 1500s and 1600s. Alnwick Castle.
