Hult Church was completed in 1841. It replaced the near medieval church, which was demolished later. The pulpit (made in the 1600s), altar (1673) and font (1200s) have been brought from the previous church.

Hult kyrka är en fin stor vit kyrkobyggnad. Trevligt kyrkogård med en fin gammal mur runt platsen. Kyrkvaktmästaren var mycket trevlig och låste upp för mig så att jag fick gå in. Han berättade mycket om kyrkan. Vacker och behaglig interiör utan att vara för mycket eller påträngande. Det finns en handikappramp vid ingången. Toalett (ej handikapp än) garderob mm. Bl.a. barnhörna.

Craigmillar Castle

Craigmillar is one of Scotland’s most perfectly preserved castles. It began as a simple tower-house residence. Gradually, over time, it developed into a complex of structures and spaces, as subsequent owners attempted to improve its comfort and amenity. As a result, there are many nooks and crannies to explore.

The surrounding gardens and parkland were also important. The present-day Craigmillar Castle Park has fascinating reminders of the castle’s days as a rural retreat on the edge of Scotland’s capital city.

At the core lies the original, late-14th-century tower house, among the first of this form of castle built in Scotland. It stands 17m high to the battlements, has walls almost 3m thick, and holds a warren of rooms, including a fine great hall on the first floor.

‘Queen Mary’s Room’, also on the first floor, is where Mary is said to have slept when staying at Craigmillar. However, it is more likely she occupied a multi-roomed apartment elsewhere in the courtyard, probably in the east range.

Sir Simon Preston was a loyal supporter of Queen Mary, whom she appointed as Provost of Edinburgh. In this capacity, he was her host for her first night as a prisoner, at his townhouse in the High Street, on 15 June 1567. She was taken to Lochleven Castle the following day.

The west range was rebuilt after 1660 as a family residence for the Gilmour family.

The 15th-century courtyard wall is well preserved, complete with gunholes shaped like inverted keyholes. Ancillary buildings lie within it, including a private family chapel.
