Just off from a secondary road winding near the coast of Scotland close to Aberdeen is a small castle that is rarely ever seen.  You could pass on by and never know it was there in the trees.  We stopped here amidst a three day period of rain, where it became the only site of the day.  The castle was once the home of George Jamesone, the most famous portrait painter in Reformation Scotland.  Also it housed the Clans Gordon and Cheyne, and numerous other families.  Today it is a small place quiet place, distant from the conflict that once burned it, standing upon the ruins of a larger site that it once cannibalized.
