 Scottish legends say that a traitor set the castle
on fire, allowing the English to capture Nigel 
Bruce and his garrison, who were then executed
by hanging. The traitor was rewarded with 
much gold....poured molten down his throat.

Inverness Castle Twilight
Inverness Castle Twilight
Not much of the original Inverness Castle remains,
much of what you see is a mock castle, rebuilt
in 1835. The original castle was a strategically
important stronghold along the River Ness.
The castle was besieged many times by
both the Scots and the English. Captured by
Edward the 1st and recaptured back by
Robert the Bruce.

Knock Castle
Knock Castle
Knock Castle is a former stronghold of the MacDonalds.
It lies on the Isle of Skye, along the eastern side of Knock Bay. 
The castle was constructed by the Clan MacLeod 
and later captured by the Clan MacDonald in the late 
15th century. Ownership of the castle passed between
the two clans several times. It was remodeled in 1596 by the MacDonalds. By 1689 the castle was abandoned and started to decay. Most of the stones were then used for nearby buildings.
The castle is haunted by a Green Lady, a ghost associated 
with the fortunes of the family who occupy the castle. 
The ghost will appear happy if good news is to come,
if there is bad news she will weep.
