#Writephoto Round-Up – Approach

He wandered the ruins in an endless, restless state.

He knew every nook, every crannie, and every stone.

Especially the stone from which he had fallen.

The moat looked beautiful today, peaceful even.

He’d followed the guides as they’d walked across the bridge, and heard their whispers, today they were going to do scans of the moat.

They were excited.

The team approached the castle. In search of weapons, jewels and answers to ancient questions.

He wondered if today was the day he’d be free to leave this castle.

The day, they finally found his body in the water.


This beautiful castle is Caerlaverock in Scotland, I’ve been lucky enough to visit it three times now and each time it amazes me. Caerlaverock is a triangular shaped castle and is unique among British castles.

The eagle-eyed amongst you spotted this is the second time I have featured an approach to a castle with the previous one, Raby Castle, shown below. I love both, equally ancient, mystical and mysterious in their own ways. Which do you prefer?

I’ve had so many wonderful responses and enjoyed each and every one. This week’s list is below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.


I hope you’ll join me for another #writephoto challenge, the latest is published here:

      1. We have too, so many lovely spots, Southerness lighthouse, Sweetheart Abbey and of course, Wigtown – the Scottish town of books, are some of our favourite spots. 🙂 KL ❤

  1. I love your story K.L. it’s one I hope it ends well for the ghost.
    I love both Castles… Too hard to judge because the second one looks so atmospheric while the first looks so fairytale 💜

    1. I know, isn’t it incredible how the approach to a castle can look so different but equally magical. I love it. Anything that gives me that sense of wonder 🙂 KL ❤
