Inverness Castle
William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
(From Macbeth)

DUNCAN.  This castle hath a pleasant seat; the air
Nimbly and sweetly recommends itself
Unto our gentle senses.
  BANQUO.            This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve,        5
By his loved mansionry, that the heaven’s breath
Smells wooingly here; no jutty, frieze,
Buttress, nor coigne of vantage, but this bird
Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle.
Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed,        10
The air is delicate.
