During our trip to North Berwick last weekend, we went to Tantallon castle. Steven and I love driving around and discovering new castles-spoiled of choices, aren’t we in Scotland? Tantallon castle is so close to North Berwick I had no idea, only 5′ in the car and you are there!
This castle is a bit different than the ones we have visited so far; the building is tall and awakens your deep buried vertigo feelings. Add to this that it is located on the top of a cliff and you get the entire picture…
However, what is special about this castle is that it has the BEST view of the Bass Rock! Yup, if there is one place that has a clear view of the famous North Berwick bird rock then this is it.
Tantallon was built in the mid 14th century and it was inhibited up until the 17th! I loved the inner court window views, for a second my brain drifted back away and visualised how beautiful it must have been to live in this place back in time.
