Ladies and Gentlemen,

Just when you probably thought the Royal Endeavors – Scotland adventures got all of my creative juice flowing while enchanting your perception in my previous yet marvelous episodes, I dare to challenge you again with yet another fantastic masterpiece revolving around one of Glasgow’s most popular free visitor attraction – Kelvingrove Art Museum and Gallery. 

By now, you might be well aware of the awe, amazement and respect I proudly stand in for Scotland, a country which I solemnly appreciate for its magical, mythical and mystical relevance and absolutely praise for its healthy endeavors, such as doctors prescribing quality time to be spent in nature for a series of conditions raging from depression to diabetes and treating knife crime among young people as health issue, an inspired strategy which has led to a dramatic decrease in stabbings across the country. If these facts don’t impress you, I don’t know what will but I am giving it a try anyway.

By now, I have taken you higher on the wings of good fortune and wild imagination above two of Scotland’s most famous and impressive castles, Stirling and Inveraray. We have admired the world famous Unicorn Tapestries together and cat-walked elegantly through extravagant decors pertaining to the iconic Duke of Argyll Gothic Revival country mansion, we have deepened the symbolical meaning enriching the historical references and mystified every peculiar detail in order to set the tone high for the fabulous surprises forthcoming. 

Now it is time for another superb jewel embellishing Scotland’s crown of significance, the outstanding Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the country’s most visited free attraction. With 22 themed, state-of-the-art galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects, the collections are extensive, wide-ranging and internationally-significant, as you will have the pleasure to discover in my dedicated blog post.
They include natural history, arms and armour, art from many art movements and periods of history and much more. Welcome to Heaven, my Lords of the Isles!

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.

Royal Endeavors – Stirling Castle

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Kings and Queens,

One of the glorious aspects of my intense summer was not the Sun shining onto my radiant Snow White skin, but my Soul shining from within when I was first touched ground on the mythical and mystical land of mountain wildernesses interspersed with glacial glens (valleys) and lochs (lakes), which is Scotland, my love. You would probably consider this trip to be a rather peculiar choice, considering my background of walking on the Path of Jesus in several Arabic countries, fascinated by aspects related to Life and Culture, which served their purpose of Enlightenment, but it is, nevertheless, one of the most outstanding trips I have ever had, considering the valuable Historical and Religious References which had broadened my horizons, the Myth and Glory surrounding its Land, the National Pride of its Natives, and the High Vibrational Energy I was exposed to, elements which had greatly impacted my conscience and contributed enormously to the life-changing events to follow. 

First of all, I would like to point out several aspects related to the country’s Independence, Early History, Religion, Education, National Identity, Renewable Energy and Woodland Expansion available for your general reference on Wikipedia and optimized by myself, in order to facilitate the public understanding of the general context and my personal preference for Scotland. I have only chosen information which I consider remarkable from a cultural and spiritual perspective, filtered at the level of my own Conscience and Experience, facts which have enriched my perception and awareness of Scotland being of the most valuable contribution not only to the world, but also to my Mission of Enlightenment. 

Then I would love to invite you to walk along myself onto the path of Glory of Stirling Castle, a remarkable treasure and one of Scotland’s grandest castles due to its imposing position and impressive architecture. The Scenery will take your breath away, Stirling Castle being one of the most naturally well defended and largest castles in all of Scotland. Cliffs defend 75% of the castle walls and intricate and beautiful hand-woven tapestries hang on the walls of the Queen’s Inner Hall in the royal palace. They all feature the national animal of Scotland – the Majestic and Fierce Unicorn, my favorite Symbol of Love and Purity, also linked to Christianity as you will soon discover.
Buckle up and follow my lead – this is the beginning of a beautiful journey!

“We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.”
