Tantallon Castle

Unfortunately, due to lockdown, Tantallon Castle is closed until 28 August 2020. But I was still pleased to get a clearer and closer view than I had before, when it had simple been a tantalising shape viewed from the Firth of Forth.

Built in the mid-14th-century  by William Douglas, 1st Earl of Douglas, much of the fortress’s mighty curtain wall still stands. It is visible from surrounding cliffs and coves, and is clearly worth closer investigation once its portcullises open to the public again.

  1. I agree with Cee. Everything here that is old is new in comparison to Europe and Asian buildings. Even some of our stone buildings have been allowed to fall into disrepair.
