Blair Castle

Blair Castle was like a Scottish fairytale. The entryway reminded me of the Highlands estate from Downton Abbey, owned by Shrimpie and Susan, Lord and Lady Flintshire. There were hundred of weapons and sets of antlers artfully displayed all over the walls, grand rooms, ball gowns, tapestries, paintings, tartans and, my personal favorite, a china room almost as big as my last apartment! There was a guy in a kilt playing the bagpipes when we arrived. The bare-chested guy with the sword and key comes from the crest of Clan Murray, the chief of which holds the title Duke of Atholl. The current Duke, Bruce Murray, is Steve’s age and lives in South Africa.
