Whirpool II by SebastianKraus Whirpool II by SebastianKraus
Tantallon Castle in Scotland.

Tantallon Castle served as a great baronial residence for the Douglas family for 300 years.

The castle was built in the 1350's by William, 1st earl of Douglas, who had inherited the barony of North Berwick from his uncle, Sir James of Douglas, a close friend of Robert the Bruce. Following the death of his son James, the house heirless was divided in two with Tantallon passed to the 'Red' Douglases, earls of Angus.

The castle survived two siege attempts.

Stunning capture! I currently live in Edinburgh, and I really need to make a trip back to Tantallon. I have seen so many gorgeous photographs of the castle taken from the shore. I just need to know how to get down to the shore from the castle on the cliff.

Glad you told me there was a castle there. Otherwise I'd have never known. So tiny and it blends in. Interesting perspective though.
