Description

VFR Navigation. The pilot in command must navigate the aircraft by visual reference to the ground or water, or by using any of the methods specified except that when operating at or below 2000 ft above the ground or water, the pilot in command must be able to navigate by visual reference to the ground or water.

  • When navigating by visual reference to the ground or water, the pilot in command must positively fix the aircraft’s position by visual reference to features shown on topographical charts at intervals not exceeding 30 minutes. When flying over the sea, visual reference features may include rocks and reefs and fixed man-made objects which are marked on suitable charts and are readily identifiable from the air.

Eilean Donan (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Donnain) is a small tidal island where three sea lochs meet, Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the western Highlands of Scotland. A picturesque castle that frequently appears in photographs, film and television dominates the island, which lies about 1 kilometre (5⁄8 mi) from the village of Dornie. Since the castle's restoration in the early 20th century, a footbridge has connected the island to the mainland.

Navigate from Perth to Blair castle Scotland using the river as a ground feature.

Blair Castle is said to have been started in 1269 by John I Comyn, Lord of Badenoch (died c. 1275), a northern neighbour of David I Strathbogie, Earl of Atholl (died 1270), who started building on the Earl's land while he was away on crusade. Upon his return, the Earl complained about the interloper to King Alexander III, won back his land and incorporated the tower that had been built into his own castle. David II Strathbogie, Earl of Atholl (died 1326), forfeited the titles and estates after rebelling against Robert the Bruce in 1322. The earldom was granted to a number of individuals until 1457 when James II granted it to his half-brother John Stewart (1440–1512). John Murray, son of the second Earl of Tullibardine, was created Earl of Atholl in 1629, and the title has since remained in the Murray family.

During the Wars of the Three Kingdoms of the 17th century, the Murrays supported the Royalist cause, which led to Blair Castle being taken by Oliver Cromwell's army following his invasion of 1650. The restored Charles II created the title Marquess of Atholl for John Murray, 2nd Earl of Atholl (1631–1703). The title Duke of Atholl was granted to the 2nd Marquess in 1703.

The Atholl Highlanders is a Scottish ceremonial infantry regiment. They are the only remaining private army in Europe, and act as the personal bodyguard to the Duke of Atholl - Chief of the Clan Murray, a family that has thrived in Perthshire for some 750 years. Although it has no military role, this hand-picked body of local men are armed with Lee Metford rifles and the regiment includes a pipe band. Joining the Highlanders is by invitation only from the Duke, who specially selects people with ties to the estate or the local area. The regiment is not part of the British Army but under the command of the Duke of Atholl, and based in at Blair Castle, Blair Atholl. It is the only legal private army in Europe.

Royal Residence

Balmoral is known today for being the summer residence of Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh . The Castle became a royal residence in 1848 , when it was rented to Queen Victoria, great-grandmother of the current monarch. The kings liked the residence so much that they decided to buy it for £ 30,000. The Prince Consort immediately began works to expand the 15th century castle and adapt it to the queen's needs.
