Castle Stalker in Gaelic, Stalcaire, meaning Hunter or Falconer - near Glencoe. This is the 2nd most photographed castle in Scotland, built around 1320. Apparently the area my ancestors hail from. Ta for looking :o)

Nice faming, and captures a certain desolate beauty. And tgsgirl, it IS the castle from the end of Monty Python and the Holy Grail - they filmed at Castle Stalker :-)
