Collapsing Bannerman Castle on the Hudson River

Share/Bookmark

About 50 miles north of New York City, there is a small, rocky island named Pollepel. On it stands what appears to be a crumbling Scottish castle. This is the remnant of a Scotsman’s fortress called Bannerman Castle, built not as a home, but as an arsenal for his immense collection of weapons. Bannerman Castle and Pollepel Island are closed to the public and accessible only through tours arranged by the Bannerman Castle Trust. Do not attempt to land on the island or enter the harbor surrounding the Island.

Share/Bookmark

Located in the deep south of Morocco, the Draa Valley stretches from the city of Ouarzazate into the Sahara Desert. The Draa River Valley is over 100 kilometres in length. The Draa Valley is a stunning oasis home to Berber villages, sumptuous Kasbahs, streaming sand dunes, lush green plains, snow-capped Atlas Mountains, endless stretches of palm trees and the Draa, Morocco’s largest river. It was once an important transit point on the trans-Saharan caravan route as well as an important center for Jewish civilization and Arab learning and religion. 225,000 people live in the valley of the Draa, which measures 23,000 km². The valley corresponds with the province of Zagora, created in 1997, in the Souss-Massa-Drâa region. In the province there are 23 villages and two towns: Zagora and Agdz.
