Old Photographs Of Isle Of Colonsay Inner Hebrides Scotland

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Colonsay, Scottish Gaelic: Colbhasa, an island in the Inner Hebrides, located north of Islay and south of Mull. During the 18th century the lairds of the island were Macneils, and included Archibald Macneil. Colonsay House was first built by the Mcneil family in 1722. Colonsay is the ancestral home of Clan Macfie and the Colonsay branch of Clan MacNeil. Little is known of the early history of the Clan Macfie, however, it is certain that the clan served under the Lords of the Isles, descendants of Somerled, who ruled the Hebrides from the 14th century to the late 16th century. Following the forfeiture of the Lordship of the Isles in the late 15th century, the clan still attached itself to powerful Macdonalds. In the early 17th century the last chief of the clan was executed as Colonsay was lost to the control of a Macdonald. Without a chief of their own to control their home lands the clan was considered a leaderless ” broken clan “. From this point on the Macfies followed the Macdonalds of Islay, though a branch of the clan was dispersed to lands controlled by Clan Cameron In the early 19th century Ewen Macphee became a notorious outlaw, ” revered and feared by locals and despised by the authorities “. Today the modern Clan Macfie is alive with nine associated clan societies located around the world. Donald MacKinnon, was born in 1839 on Colonsay. He was a Celtic scholar, the first elected Professor of Celtic languages, literature, history and antiquities at Edinburgh University, a chair he occupied from 1882 to the year of his death in 1914.

Old Photographs Of Isle Of Jura Inner Hebrides Scotland

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Jura, Scottish Gaelic: Diùra, an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, adjacent to and to the north east of Islay. The main settlement is the village of Craighouse on the east coast, which is its capital. Craighouse is home to the Jura Whisky Distillery, producing Isle of Jura single malt whisky. Craighouse was once served by a direct ferry from the mainland which berthed at Craighouse pier. This service was terminated some years ago, and access is now via an 8 miles single track road from Feolin on Jura’s south west coast, where there is a small vehicle ferry to the neighbouring island of Islay. However, since 2007 a passengers only ferry service to Craighouse has operated during the summer from the village of Tayvallich on the mainland. The island is dominated by three steep sided conical quartzite mountains on its western side called the Paps of Jura. The demise of the Lords of the Isles at the end of the fifteenth century was shortly followed in 1506 by the Treaty of Camas an Staca, which removed MacDonald rights on Jura and gave them to the Campbells. Despite this, the sixteenth century was a period of skirmishing between the warring clans: McDonald, Campbell, MacLean and others. Then in 1607 the Campbells finally bought the island from the MacDonalds. This was the beginning of some three hundred years during which the island was ruled and largely owned by eleven successive Campbell lairds. The north of the island, however, remained in MacLean hands until 1737, when it was sold to Donald MacNeil of Colonsay. Beginning in the later 18th century, long before the notorious Highland Clearances of the following century, there were several waves of emigration from Jura. In 1767, fifty people left for Canada. In his later life, George Orwell moved to Barnhill, on Jura, living there intermittently from 1946, while critically ill with tuberculosis, until his death in January 1950. He was known to the residents of Jura by his real name, Eric Blair. It was at Barnhill that Orwell finished Nineteen Eighty Four, during 1947 and 1948, he sent the final typescript to his publishers, Secker and Warburg, on 4 December 1948, and they published the book on 8 June 1949. Despite its isolation, Barnhill has in recent years become something of a shrine for his readers.

Briana and Steffen’s northern Michigan wedding in Marquette was absolutely amazing. These two had the weather timed perfectly and in between rain showers and thunderstorms they were able to squeeze in some breathtaking moments near the Black Rocks in Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan! Did we mention they let us join in on a family hike on Sugar Loaf Mountain the day before? Their family was so kind and welcoming and made us feel right apart of the group. Bree and Steffen’s details throughout the day were impeccable including Steffen’s boutonniere that was a fly fishing hook! How cool is that? The reception was held at Briana’s sister’s brewery, Ore Dock Brewing Company, and what a perfect place for a reception. Filled with a layered cake of different cheese, ice cream for dessert, pasties for a late night snack (only in the U.P. have we ever seen this!), a local band, endless amounts of delicious Ore Dock beer, and an emotional speech from the groom – what more could you ask for? Bree and Steffen, we were truly honored to be apart of your wedding day and look forward to what the future has in store for you two!

Marquette Michigan Wedding:

When we got the call from Briana that they were looking for a wedding videographer to film their wedding in Marquette Michigan and that the wedding reception was at a brewery we were super excited! We vacation in Marquette, MI every summer and know how beautiful the landscapes are along lake superior. Also the weather can change on a dime so we went from a rainy morning to foggy, a sunny ceremony to thunderstorms after, and then a beautiful sunset all in one day! The girls got ready at the historic Landmark Inn and the boys at the Watermarq condo downtown. The outdoor ceremony at Presque Isle Park was absolutely stunning!

Northern Michigan Wedding Venue:

Briana’s sister owns the Ore Dock Brewing Company so it was an obvious choice for a wedding venue. This place had a real rustic vibe to it with all the wood floor and paneling. And of course the beer was fantastic!
