During this period the ruling Stuart dynasty had been overthrown and replaced with the dual Protestant monarchs of William of Orange and his wife Mary. ▫️ Although widely accepted, a Jacobite movement emerged and in 1707 William Keith, Ninth Earl Marischal was implicated and imprisoned. Although released his son – George Keith, Tenth Earl Marischal – later participated in the 1715 Jacobite rebellion including fighting at the Battle of Sherrifmuir. With the defeat of the uprising he fled abroad only returning in 1763 after a pardon granted specifically at the request of Frederick the Great of Prussia. ▫️ During this period Dunnottar had been sold into the hands of the York Building Company who plundered the ruined remains for masonry, lead and other items of value. ▫️ The impregnable fortress is perched on a giant conglomorate on the edge of the North-Sea. ▫️ Image by @iamcallvm —————————————————
