Scot's seem to be very rare in Nevada !!

Glad it's of interest Steve .

Many of my family (Clan Hannah?) came into America possibly 1700's maybe through Baltimore with many settling in Western Kentucky

I'm a Cajun with Scottish blood, now that's rare.

By golly Robert that is probably very rare! You one of a kind!

No Scottish blood....but I did leave some blood in Scotland and some Scotland in my blood.

I spent 2 years as a Mormon Missionary in Scotland and it kept part of my heart when I went home. Been back for a few visits and it always feels a little like home.

Don't know what castle that is exactly. But it's a nice one. Mostly looks to be intact as well.

Yes, the Castle that John showed of "our clan" was in need of serious repair.

English/Scot from my Maternal Grandmother (Wagstaff) (WWII war bride). Married my 8th generation German immigrant Grandfather (Turner).

It is a wonderful landscape.

The castle is Eilean Donan Alexander , it was a ruin after being knocked about by government warships after the first Jacobite rebellion . It was restored in the early twentieth century by the wonderfully named Lieutenant-Colonel John Macrae-Gilstrap .

You can have a virtual tour of the castle here,
