Balmoral Castle. When castle gates are closed, small visible areas - towers in the distance -- suffice. Prince Albert rented the castle in 1848 sight unseen, after the royal family had enjoyed visiting the Highlands as a favorite destiination since 1842. With everybody happy with it, he bought it for Queen Victoria in 1852. The only problem was the castle itself: too small, just too small. So the family lived in it only until a replacement could be built 100 years to the northwest -- and then the old castle was demolished, with only a commemorative memorial stone left to mark the old front door. Another stone! At the new castle, Victoria put a parchment marking the date and with currrent sample coins in a bottle and inserted the bottle into the foundation stone.
Balmoral, Castle, Scotland
Balmoral is not easily found. Drive around enough, and find a small vista.
Victoria's will: the property passed to Edward VII, and then passes to each of his successors. Fine.
