Bonny Strathmore

Strathmore or An Srath Mr is a strath or wide valley in Sutherland in northern Scotland. The strath is in the parish of Durness to the south-east of Loch Eriboll. It runs north-south and has a minor road running alongside the Strathmore River which flows along the valley floor northwards into Loch Hope.

Glamis Castle (pictured above) is set in the broad and fertile lowland valley of Strathmore, near Forfar. It is the home of the Earl and Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne. Glamis Castle has been the home of the Lyon family since the 14th century, though the present building dates largely from the 17th century. Glamis was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, wife of King George VI. Their second daughter, Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, was born there.
