We went and visited Tantallon Castle on Saturday. it’s a large castle ruin near North Berwick Scotland. It overlooks the entrance to the Firth of Forth.

Tantallon has great views out over the waters of the North Sea and the entrance to the Firth of Forth. Here is the island called Bass Rock. At one point it had a fort upon it. It was also the refuge for an 8th century monk called Baldred. Now it has a light house, but no humans. It’s a bird sanctuary with about 80,000 nesting pairs..

All in all it’s a great castle to visit. You can climb up into a lot of areas on the wall. Some of them quite spooky. Don’t go up into some of the areas if you are at all afraid of heights.
