Tour Scotland Autumn Video Sunnybrae Cottage Pitlochry Highland Perthshire



Tour Scotland Autumn video of Sunnybrae Cottage on ancestry visit to Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland. Once an inn, it was the scene in 1767 of a tragic accident involving cousins John Stewart of Bonskeid and Donald Stewart of Sheierglass. During a fight, Bonskeid was stabbed by Sheierglass' knife which was being used as cutlery during a meal. It is rumoured that, following the Highland belief that if a murderer could see light under their victims coffin, they would escape punishment, Shierglass hid until the funeral procession passed by, then fled to Holland where he stayed for many years before returning and settling back in Highland Perthshire.

Old Photograph Youth Hostel Glen Brittle Isle Of Skye Scotland

Old photograph of the Youth Hostel in Glen Brittle on the Isle Of Skye, Scotland. Many tributaries of the River Brittle run down from these mountains into the glen, including a stream with waterfalls known as the Fairy Pools, a popular place to go for a walk. Because of its location by the peaks, the area is popular with hikers and mountain bikers. The most popular choice of accommodation is the SYHA's 1930s youth hostel by the Allt a' Choire Ghreadaidh, a Brittle tributary, just north of Glenbrittle hamlet. This is an ideal starting point for walks up to the Cuillin hills. The sandy beach at the southernmost point of the glen is the most popular attraction. It is adjacent to the campsite, where there is also a grocery shop, and campers often visit the beach and swim in the loch.
