In the Glen

 Today I caught up with old friends in the Glen. To get there I passed the palace and other historical sites. I thought some of the readers of this blog might enjoy seeing the photos l took. As ever click on them to make them bigger.

Although I have read this post before on your blog (and noticed the presence of peacocks again), it never struck me before that Charles 1st, a Stuart, was Scottish.

Would this King of England had a Scottish accent? I wonder what he sounded like?

To be fair, plenty of our 'English' Kings and Queens would have spoken little Anglish, and even if they could, spoken with a French, Norse, German, Dutch etc accent anyway ...

Where's a historical time machine and tape recorder when you need one? I doubt if the existing sound record would go back past Victoria ... or Edward VII?

Where is Lucy Worsley (other Royal Historians are available) when you need her?
