Dunrobin Castle by annie7

Thank you so much everyone for your wonderful comments, votes and favs, always appreciated.

Dunrobin Castle is a stately home in Sutherland, in the Highland area of Scotland and the family seat of the Earl of Sutherland and the Clan Sutherland.
Dunrobin’s origins lie in the Middle Ages, but most of the present building and the gardens was added by Sir Charles Barry between 1835 and 1850. Some of the original building is visible in the interior courtyard, despite a number of expansions and alterations that made it the largest house in the north of Scotland.
