Spring Ossian's Hall And River Braan By Dunkeld On History Visit To Highland Perthshire Scotland

Tour Scotland short 4K travel video clip of Ossian's Hall overlooking the River Braan on ancestry, family history visit by Dunkeld, Perthshire, Britain, United Kingdom. This is a Georgian structure located at The Hermitage. The original folly was built on a rocky outcrop for the 2nd Duke of Atholl in 1757. James Murray, 2nd Duke of Atholl, born 28 September 1690, died 8 January 1764, styled Marquess of Tullibardine between 1715 and 1746, was a Scottish peer, and Lord Privy Seal. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, the third son of John Murray, 1st Duke of Atholl, by Lady Catherine, daughter of William Hamilton, Duke of Hamilton. He was allegedly the first to plant European Larch in Great Britain; one of a group of five near Dunkeld cathedral planted in 1738 is still alive. He died at Dunkeld on 8 January 1764, in his seventy fourth year, and was buried at Inveresk. He was succeeded by in the barony of Strange by his daughter, Lady Charlotte, and in the Scottish titles by his nephew, John, the son of George Murray, a general in the Jacobite rising of 1745 which the second Duke did not join. Spring in the northern hemisphere technically starts on the 20 March, at the equinox, and lasts until the 20 or 21 June, the Summer solstice. This is also the case in Scotland.The months that make up the Spring season are March, April and May. However, for travelling at this time of year, I will be referring to April and May.
