The Wars of the Roses" in the 15th century refers to the heraldic badges, associated with the two royal houses (Lancaster and York), as they fought to secure their claim to the English throne. The final victory by Lancastrian Henry Tudor at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 saw him marrying Elizabeth of York to unite the two houses, with the Tudor red and white rose symbolizing this union.
Lismore Lighthouse on Loch Linnhe is another magical point in our west coast journey across from Oban to the Isles. I can't stop photographing it!
