Located on the west bank of the River Ness in Inverness, Scotland, this Palladian style building was formerly the Queen Street Free Church, c.1893-1895. It has been occupied by D. Chisolm & Sons Funeral Home since 1978.
Rait Castle – A Hall House Design
Howdy, strangers! How are you guys? It has been AGES since I have been here. I really don’t have a good reason why I haven’t published, other than that life took over, and I got lazy. Funny how that can happen, huh? I realized over the weekend, that today, August 11, is the fourth anniversary of this blog. So, how could I possibly let the day slip by without posting something, and maybe, just maybe?…spur myself on to get back into the groove.
In light of that, today, I would like to tell you about an interesting ruin located 3.5 miles south of Nairn, Scotland (about thirty minutes northeast of Inverness).
This is Rait Castle.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
May your troubles be less,
and your blessings be more,
and nothing but happiness come through your door!
Wishing you blessings upon blessings today!

Will the 3rd Time be the Charm?
Well, it’s official. Our 2020 trip to Scotland, rescheduled for 2021, is rescheduled yet again for May 2022. Could the third time possibly be the charm? Muchrach Castle, you may only be a few thousand miles away, but at this point, it feels like light-years!
Big thanks to Bobbie at Savills, who has kindly worked with us to try to make this thing happen. Scotland, I MISS you!
