Great Estates of Scotland
This stunning series takes an in-depth look at the fascinating stories and inner workings of four of Scotland's most magnificent country estates, through the eyes of not only the current owners and the ghillies, gardeners, and housekeepers that keep them running, but also from the viewpoint of the paying guests who frequent these sumptuous country estates.
Inveraray Castle - For more than 500 years, Inveraray Castle has housed the Clan Campbell, and is now home to the 13th Duke of Argyll, His Grace Torquhil Ian Campbell, and his young family.
Dumfries House - Boasting one of the largest collections of Chippendale furniture in the world, this once-neglected mansion was dramatically brought back to life by HRH The Prince of Wales.
Kincardine Castle - Home to only two people, the 70-room castle and its 3,000-acre estate was once merely a trifling extravagance to its wealthy owners, but now presents a passionate but ongoing struggle to keep it afloat.
Rosslyn Chapel - Rife with myth and legend, many believe the mysterious Chapel to be home to the Holy Grail or the skull of St. Matthew, John the Baptist, or even of Jesus Christ.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
