A lingering look at the windows of ‘St Michaels’ Mount’.

I have just returned from a five-day visit to Cornwall, and one of the many historic places I really enjoyed, was St Michael’s Mount, the most famous of Cornwall’s landmarks. This majestic castle is built high on a granite crag, and dates back to the 14th century. When I have more time, I’ll do a post with more photos, but for now here are just a few of the wonderful windows which look out across Mounts Bay.


Every window has a magnificent view.


I could imagine myself sitting on this window seat for hours, reading a book or just staring out to sea.


Each window had a special charm of its own.


Just take a look at this ornate window fastener. So beautiful.


This one just had a plain pane of glass, but the gorgeous view certainly made up for that.


It’s hard to pick a favourite, but I really loved this one.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my lingering look at windows. To see more, click here to visit Dawn’s latest post.

    • I just came back to this post on my old blog to look at the photos, and saw that I hadn’t answered your comment. Thanks, Dallas. I really enjoyed my visit to Cornwall.

  1. I always wanted to go to St Michaels Mount, Ad. Absolutely love your windows. πŸ™‚
    When are you off to the Rhine? A full week’s cruise? Eeeh, lass- it’s all go!

    • Thanks, Meg. You really must go over the causeway to St Michael’s Mount. Cornwall s an amazing place, and we visited so many interesting places there. πŸ™‚

  2. A very nice collection! Imagine all of the hours that have been spent staring out, through those panes, since the building was erected in the 14th century. I’d love to be able to add a few of my own. πŸ˜‰

  3. I’d definitely go for dreamy hours spent in that window seat! Such fantastic details for windows… who’d of thought? Great images.

  4. Great photos from a wonderful place. πŸ™‚

    I quite enjoyed the interesting facts about butlers I learned there (like how they were paid more if they were taller!). Did you read the bit about Queen Victoria paying a visit? The family were out and missed her!

    I did a few posts on St Michael’s Mount a while ago. I was going to add some links as I thought you might be interested. But then I noticed that you’d already commented on them! πŸ™‚
