As a centre of the 18th century Age of Enlightment Edinburgh was nicknamed "Athens of the North", also earning the soubriquet Auld Reekie for its belching chimneys and insanitary living conditions. Historic Edinburgh is divided by Princes Street Gardens, reclaimed in the early 19th century from boggy land that was once a finger of the loch. To one side Edinburgh Castle perches on its volcanic crag, with the Old Town trailing down the ridge. The medieval plan is preserved and many buildings date from the 16th and 17th centuries. The Royal Mile leads away from the castle. There are market squares and squares surrounding major structures such as St.Giles Cathedral, begun in the 12th century. The Law Courts, Mc Ewan Hall, Surgeons Hall and Royal Museum of Scotland are also noteworthy. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the Monarch of the United Kingdom in Scotland. The palace stands at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle. Holyrood Palace is the setting for state ceremonies and official entertaining. Holyrood Abbey was founded by David I, King of Scots, in 1128, and Holyrood Palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 15th century. Queen Elizabeth II spends one week in residence at Holyrood Palace at the beginning of each summer, where she carries out a range of official engagements and ceremonies. less

In 79AD the Roman General Agricola chose what are now the outskirts of Comrie as the site to build a fort and temporary marching camp, because of the area's strategic position on the southern fringe of the Highlands. The fort is one of the line of so-called "Glen blocking" forts and includes the legionary fortress of Inchtuthil. Huntingtower is medieval in origin. it played host to royalty: twice to Mary Queen of Scots and once to her son James VI, who was held against his will there for ten months in 1582 during the episode known as the Ruthven Raid. Once the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, Scone Palace occupies a unique position in the history of Scotland. A breathtakingly beautiful place of power and mystery and the rightful home of the celebrated Stone of Scone - also known as the Stone of Destiny. Scone Palace is regarded as a national treasure and is revered as the historic jewel in the crown of Scotland. Dating back to 1450, Falkland Palace is the only Royal Palace in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Also features a beautiful garden and the oldest Royal Tennis Court in Britain which was built fin 1539 for James V. less

Today it is famous because of its remarkable lived in Balgonie castle. The name Balgonie means "settlement of the smiths" and derives from a form of Gaelic used in Fife between 900 and 1200AD.The first recorded Lairds were the Sibbalds. The oldest part of the castle is the Great Tower, built by Sir Thomas Sibbald of Balgonie, the King's Treasurer, around 1360. The present Laird of Balgonie has beautifully restored a great part of the castle, and will treat the visitor to a most interesting tour of the property. Raymond Morris is also a retired heraldic painter and wood carver, and examples of his work can be admired all through the castle. A group of rescued pet deer hounds complement this atmosphere of times gone by. less

Budding gourmets and Spanish enthusiasts indulged their taste-buds as the week long ‘Taste of Spain’ festival concentrated on matters food and drink. This tantalising selection of Spain’s most famous foods and wines included demonstrations by chefs from London’s leading Spanish restaurants and the Spanish regions. There were even cocktails being made out of Harveys Sherry. It’s part of a push to encourage British people to sample the Spanish experience, and hopefully encourage even more of us to take a trip to Spain on holiday. To see just what was served up, take a look at this video. less
