- What's your favourite Christmas song? Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" is my #1 ❄️ So...how about we keep in the festive spirit, and take a trip to Midlothian, Scotland to see this view of Crichton Castle in the snow by @scottjamespryde! Love this view with the castle in the distance, surrounded by the glorious British countryside. This castle was built as a home for the Crichtons and served as a noble residence from the late 1300s to the close of the 1500s. Best of all - it's close enough to Edinburgh to make a quick visit! . Crichton Castle features in one of Sir Walter Scott’s earliest books, “Marmion; A Tale of Flodden Field”, published in 1808. A historical romance in verse form, set in the lead up to the Battle of Flodden in 1513, Marmion contains the famous words “Oh, what a tangled web we weave...when first we practice to deceive” (often wrongly attributed to Shakespeare). . I was always fascinated by Castles as a child... mainly because although life in a medieval castle sounds desperately romantic - full of gold crowns, Kings and Queens and oodles of pomp and ceremony. The reality is it would have been very cold and stinky at times! For instance - Castle toilets were built out of stone (sometimes with a stone seat, sometimes with wood) and projected out over the castle walls, so that the waste would drop below. Often some poor soul was required to clean out the cesspool. Especially true at a place like this, which was built more for beauty and less for defensive purposes. And can you imagine the cold air in the winter! No warm insulated carpets or double glazing for you, Sir Knight! . Thankfully we can visit these places, scoff warm scones and not worry about such things today! Lovely shot by @scottjamespryde 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured?
