Tantallon Castle

Tantallon Castle was was built in the 1350s and for a long time was the seat of the Douglas Earls of Angus, one of the most powerful baronial families in Scotland. Tantallon served as a noble fortification for more than three centuries and endured three sieges. It was the last medieval curtain wall castle to be constructed in Scotland.

 

The ancient ruin – now a local tourist attraction located east of North Berwick, in East Lothian, Scotland – was handed over to the UK Government and is now in the care of Historic Scotland.
