    Scotland. Castle Craig, an Urquhart castle, is an impressive ruin on the Cromarty Firth. Because each floor was stone vaulted (rather than using wooden beams) it has survived to its full height since being abandoned in 1640. Our ancestors on Granny Craig's side? Wouldn't that be fun!

Statue at Stirling Castle, said to depict KING JAMES V posing as the 'Gudeman of Ballengeich'. According to legend, James was nicknamed "King of the Commons" as he would sometimes travel around Scotland disguised as a common man, describing himself as the "Gudeman of Ballengeich" ('Gudeman' means 'landlord' or 'farmer', and 'Ballengeich' was the nickname of a road next to Stirling Castle – meaning 'windy pass' in Gaelic). 3rd COUSIN
