  • Tantallon Castle has a great location overlooking the ocean and the high cliffs.

    This is a 14th Century castle in good condition with thick stone walls, towers, courtyards and a history of trouble!

    You’ll find it on the eastern side of East Lothian between Dunbar and North Berwick.

    This is where Mary of Queen of Scots once stayed and it was built in the 1350’s. For hundreds of years it was owned by the Red Douglases who were a very powerful family in their day. Unfortunately the castle was under siege on a number of occassions the last being in 1651 when Cromwell actually destroyed it!
