Fabulous Friday Foto: Lake Shiel and the Glenfinnan Monument, Scotland
Loch Shiel is a beautiful valley located in the highlands of Scotland. It was here in 1745 that Bonnie Prince Charlie (the last Scottish Prince) raised his standard in an effort to unite the Jacobites to try to retake the throne of Scotland from English control. The Jacobites were defeated at the battle of Culloden, and Scotland has been under control of the English crown ever since. Today, the valley is a peaceful place to visit while toruing the highlands (and the monument is right next to the Glenfinnal Viaduct, made famous in the Harry Potter movies)
