Angerdshestra Church

Månsarp, Sweden

In 1910 during the restoration of Angerdshestra church 30 old pergaments were found revealing that the old church was inaugurated in the 13th century. Today documents are located in Stockholm Historical Museum. The current church was made of wood in 1669 to the site of medieval church. It was enlarged and restored in the 18th century. The oldest artefact is a wooden sculpture of St. Anne, dating from the 15th century. The altar was probably painted by Johan Kinnerus between 1716-1717.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
