Gatehouse (Ardverikie Estate, Scotland)

On a trip to Scotland in 2011we stayed for a few days in this Gatehouse on Ardverikie, Estate, near Cairngorm National Park. It is the gatehouse seen in the BBC series “Monarch of the Glen” and the estate “Glenbogle” The original HDR image has been very popular on our travel blog, so I decided to redo the image and share it with you.
