Queen seeks gardener for Scottish home

Queen Elizabeth II is searching for a chief gardener to keep things green around Balmoral Castle, the Scottish home of the royal family since 1852. In a help wanted ad on the Balmoral website, the royals said they sought an experienced gardener "capable of meeting the high standards at this important property."

If you think you could be up to the job, you can read more here.

Can that a Scottish Castle?

A Scottish castle overlooking the mountains of Denver is on sale for $8.7 million. The 14,483-square foot home has has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, stunning wood work throughout, a great view of the Colorado mountains and a small waterfall in the backyard. The house is called "A Scottish Castle" and the only thing it's missing is the moat.

But that's not what I call a Scottish castle - not by a long shot.

Now this is a Scottish Castle, and you can even stay in it!
