Strathmore or An Srath Mòr 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.
