Ardvreck Castle

Ardvreck Castle on Loch Assynt, lovely and strangely the area was covered with silver weed - good for seeing into the 'otherworld' apparently when placed on the eyelids, if that doesn't work you can always stick it in your shoes as a foot reviver and refresher (which definitely does work)!
Sorry, it's actually yarrow that was used for seeing into the 'otherworld'! I've just read that silverweed was used as a crop - the roots a tasty parsnip flavoured potato substitute, or they were dried and ground to make porridge or bread. (Also medicinally applied as a compress for heartburn or hemorrhoids :-) They do still work for sweaty feet though!
