Duffus Castle

dji phantom 2 vision+ drone footage moray scotland Duffus castle.Elgin, United Kingdom.Duffus Castle stands in open countryside 1½ miles south east of Duffus, 3 miles south west of Lossiemouth, and 3 miles north west of Elgin. It is a superbly complete and well preserved example of a motte and bailey castle and as a result is worth travelling well out of your way to see.At the start of the 1100s, Moray was governed by the Óengus, the Mormaer (or "Earl") of Moray. Óengus was a descendent of Macbeth and in 1130 led a rebellion against King David I of Scotland with the aim of gaining more independence for Moray from the control of the Scottish crown. The rebellion was defeated and Óengus was killed, but it brought home to David the fragility of his hold over Moray.He responded by granting estates in Moray to men he could trust who, in return, were expected to maintain the "king's peace". www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk Make sure you set to HD
