La Platte Mare

Guernsey, United Kingdom

La Platte Mare is a simple megalithic chamber with a single capstone dating back to the Chalcolithic or Early Bronze Age (2500 - 1800 BC). Early drawings show that some stones have been disturbed. Traces of a surrounding circle of stones 5m in diameter are no longer visible. One stone has a curved row of 12 cup marks though only 7 are visible above ground. A few metres away are the remains of another possible cist or chamber.

Lovely hotel on the beautiful island of Guernsey. Has everything, bars, restaurant, health spa, and stunning sea views. It has recently been taken over from the last long term owners who have run hotel fantastically for many years. I hope the new management keep up the high standards.

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.
