Outside Edinburgh: Tantallon Castle (East Lothian, part 2)

satsumabug.com

Continuing from yesterday’s post: One of the most dramatic and beautiful sights Catriona and Stuart took us to on Sunday — in a day of fabulous sights — was the ruins of Tantallon Castle, a 14th-century fortress set on a headland. There’s not much left of the castle, really, but it’s an atmospheric structure, and the site is just breathtaking. (Well, probably it’s freezing cold and windy and wet much of the time, but not on the day we went!)

I’m quite tired so I’ll just put all the descriptions in mouseover. We went dancing tonight (at a ceilidh!) and we leave Edinburgh tomorrow on a train to the Highlands, so it’s been a busy day. But these photos follow the path we took, exploring the castle, so they should be a good walking tour!
