The first time I came here I had already visited many Castles 🏰 in Scotland but none had impressed me as much as this Castle did. If I could describe it with one word it would be -phantasmagoric-. When I arrived I walked towards it, I looked down and I saw the wild nature in all its splendor, the rough waters and the seagulls struggling with the excessive wind. How it would be to be down there? I asked myself (see 2nd video) Here I felt the mystery of the times back when it was built. A savage place where many atrocities took place. The basement floor of this Castle was reserved as home for prisoners. The place only had the smallest chink of natural light and it was rat 🐀 infested (pic Number 9) Prisoners lived in the darkness with only little to eat. Lots of people have died here in the most deplorable conditions and I really could smell death 💀 in this place. In the following years this place kept coming to my mind from time to time. Somehow there was a feeling asking me to comeback. See my next post.
