October/November 2014

In the woods.
Torthorwald Castle near Dumfries. I've always thought that this was a strange name for Scotland. Sounds Scandinavian or Germany (The Gate to Thor's Forest?) Though it seems it's a family name. Now ruined stump the castle is thought to date from the late 14th century and was last occupied in 1715.
