Ladies and Gentlemen,

Esteemed Audience,

“If thoust can comprehend these things, thoust know enough.”

– William St Clair

We have gathered in the virtual space on this glorious All Saints’ Eve to cherish and honor the last outstanding episode of the Royal Endeavors – Scotland series, which is introducing the breathtaking Rosslyn Chapel, an oustanding architectural masterpiece which maintains its sacred allure despite being over-publicized as a tourist attraction, transcending all the expectations of those who come to visit it.

Having the chance to visit Rosslyn Chapel precisely on Saint Peter and Paul Feast, my name anniversary day, after visiting Edinburgh and experiencing the magical encounter with Hazel the Owl, is what I consider to be an exquisite gift from the Universe, one of the best I have ever received. It wasn’t only the name anniversary of my Father and I, but also of Peter St Clair-Erskine, the 7th Earl of Rosslyn, as the Rosslyn Chapel remains privately owned.

You can’t even imagine my enthusiasm to reach this fabulous 600 years old enigma, “a diminutive place of worship” invested with undisputed power, which incited the spirits for centuries and gave birth to a brilliantly conceived web of intrigue that spans three millennia to embroil the Catholic Church, Crusader Knights, Freemasonry, poets, painters and musicians, politicians and kings.

Hello, sweethearts!!! 👑

Welcome back to another splendid Royal Endeavors episode regarding my fabulous adventures in Scotland, dedicated to the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and the iconic, must-see visitor attraction on the West Coast of Scotland – the one and only marvelous Inveraray Castle. 

Inveraray Castle has been the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, chiefs of Clan Campbell, since the 18th century. A visit to this Gothic revival style country house gives an incredible insight into the history of the Campbells, once the most powerful clan in the Highlands. There’s amazing art everywhere, from the displays of Campbell family portraits through history to the lavishly painted interiors. You’ll see work by Thomas Gainsborough, John Hoppner and French artists Girard and Guinard, whose only work survives at Inveraray. 

Perhaps it was the French artistic touch and the baroque glamour of the interiors, the exquisite china and Highland ghost stories that fascinated me instantly when stepping into the extravaganza of this Royal residence, but that is not surprising at all considering the fact I was only surrounded by Art and Beauty. No wonder this envy-inducing castle has been selected as one of the 10 magnificent castles to explore in the old country of Scotland by CNN, precisely on National Tartan Day.
