In Today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle, we visit Glengorm Castle, also known as Castle Sorn. It is a striking 19th-century manor on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.

The castle was constructed in 1860 by James Forsyth of Quinish, a wealthy merchant who made his fortune in India before returning to Mull to build the castle. The design, emblematic of the Scottish Baronial style, features dramatic turrets and ornate stonework, encapsulating the Victorian era's romantic architectural trends.

The castle's history is intimately tied to the Forsyth family, who resided there until the mid-20th century. After the Forsyths, the castle changed hands several times and saw various modifications and restorations reflecting the tastes and requirements of each successive owner.

The estate has remained a prominent landmark on Mull, known for its historic architecture and spectacular natural surroundings, which include rugged coastlines and ancient woodlands.

Today, Glengorm Castle operates as a bed and breakfast and working estate with ongoing agricultural activities. It features a visitor center highlighting the local ecology and archaeology, emphasizing its status as a heritage site with notable archaeological elements like standing stones and burial cairns ♥

Beautiful stonework, and in a lovely color--as in not gray.

Lovely, thank you.
