Duart Castle

For history and lore on Duart Castle you can go to their official website. Some people may recognize the castle from film as it was featured in both the movie Entrapment with Catherine Zeta Jones and Sean Connery, as well as When Eight Bells Toll with Anthony Hopkins. And for the die-hard fantasy buff (no pun intended) it was featured in some of Buffy the Vampire Season Eight.

Standing Stones of Mull

From Explore Scotland.net (http://www.explore-isle-of-mull.co.uk/standing-stones-mull.htm) “The three stones at Baliscate formed a stone row, confirmed during an excavation in September 2005. A team from Manchester University excavated an area surrounding the stones which revealed that the original position of the recumbent stone was equidistant between the two upright standing stones. In addition to this the stump of a fourth, smaller stone was uncovered in peat to the north of the row, which appears to have been broken at some point in history. Near to the base of this stone, a small cremation burial was discovered.”
