Places to See in Scotland

 
     
 

Findhorn Bay

Findhorn village is situated on the shore of Findhorn Bay, some four miles from Forres in the County of Moray in Scotland.

Once a bustling port with trading ships discharging cargoes from afar and fishing boats landing their daily catch, Findhorn has been transformed over the years into the peaceful haven we enjoy today. Here, there is something for everyone: safe water for the dinghy sailor, windsurfer and water skier and an anchorage for yachts.

Anglers enjoy the tranquillity of their sport as they fish for trout and finnock, while children, ever hopeful, dangle their lines off the pier to tempt a wee crab or flounder to take their bait.

Overhead, the most dramatic fisher of all, the Osprey hovers, surveying the water, then plunges deep to secure a catch of salmon or trout which it will then carry to the nearby Culbin Forest to feed to its young.

Paisley Museum and Art Galleries

Paisley Museum and Art Galleries are housed in splendid neo-classical buildings at the top of the High Street.

The Museum contains the world's finest collection of Paisley shawls and pattern books. Museum staff have been working on looms in the collection for a number of years, to reinvent the techniques of the weavers who produced the immensely intricate shawls woven in the town in the last century.

The Museum also has a nationally important collection of ceramics, especially studio pottery of the 20th century. The Art Galleries' collections include a large number of Scottish artists from Raeburn and Ramsay to the Glasgow Boys and recent works by well known local artist John Byrne.

The Museum and Central Library between them have a huge collection of local material - photographs, church records, microfilm registers etc., and access can be arranged by contacting the Family History Centre at the Museum or the Local Studies Library in Paisley Central Library

Thirlestane Castle

Set in the Scottish Borders at Lauder, Thirlestane Castle has its origins in the 13th century. It was rebuilt as the Maitland family home in 1590 and greatly enhanced by the Duke of Lauderdale in the 1670's.

In 1840, it was extended and refurbished with the addition of two new wings. The Maitlands are a famous Scottish family who first came to Britain from France with William the Conqueror.

As the seat of the Earls and Duke of Lauderdale, the Castle has at times held a central role in the history of Scotland. Now in the care of a Charitable Trust, Thirlestane has been carefully restored to its former splendour.
