Castle Entrance

It's been well over a week since I last put up a shot of the castle, and as I have guests visiting, and am about to go to the castle (again!), I thought I'd bring you a closer look at the entry. There are stone guards on either side of the doorway to scare you off and above the doorway is a plaque with the Royal flag of Scotland (the red lion rampant on the yellow background) and the Scottish motto 'nemo me impune lacessit' - no-one provokes me with impunity, or in simple English, no-one pisses me off and gets away with it!

That red stone is just amazing - is it sandstone?

It's the first time I heard of the scottish motto...no one pisses me off and gets away with it...and I love it! From now on I will take that motto and use it as my self motto =)
