25 February 2019: Peter and Sian wandered the grounds of Taymouth Castle. It was the first day of a wonderful short break. We were looking for ‘Apollo’s Temple’. We came across much of interest, but Apollo, and his temple, alluded us!
APOLLO: the god of healing, medicine, archery, music, poetry and the sun.
Today, 3rd July 2020! I found Apollo’s temple [on the first day that wider travel was permitted following coronavirus ‘lockdown’]
Apollo’s Temple is in a terrible state:
Aware that the Temple was on the ‘Buildings at Risk’ Register, it was only in finding it, that I realised how at risk it has become.
