Out and about

SAM_7097.JPGI was out and about for a wee walk and had to take this picture.

The castle was forfeited in 1745, after the Jacobite rebellion when the owner was hung, drawn and quartered for treason . It was bought in 1765, but the new owners preferred to live in Edinburgh and it was abandoned.

The train line is the main East Coast line that goes South.

The Scottish Countyside, blending the old with the new!

Any thoughts?

Does the train spoil the view?

Add to the view?

  1. I think the train is just fine in the picture. The train and the castle reflect different eras of time but same location. Time is always changing, but the location always stays the same. Love the picture, thanks for sharing. 🙂

    1. That’s a great way of describing it. I knew I had to take the photo, but couldn’t quite put into words the meaning behind the photo or why it seemed to affect me but you’ve managed to explain it perfectly. Thank you.

  2. It adds to the sight, but it still kind of contradicts the view. It’s a big flash of modern human civilization, and it’d be great if the area would’ve been kept as the image of the way human civilization was before. Still extraordinary beautiful, really.

    1. Yes, sometimes technology and modern civilisation gets in the way of preservation. But I suppose its the price we pay for having the luxury of fast and convenient travel. It can be difficult to get the right balance between the old and new. Thanks for commenting
