Tantallon Castle (HES)

Set on the edge of cliffs, this formidable castle was a stronghold of the Douglas family.

Ascend Tantallon's towers for spectacular views of the Bass Rock and to watch gannets plunge into the North Sea. Then descend into the depths of a particularly grim pit prison.The castle was home to the powerful Red Douglas dynasty, which often clashed with the Crown. It was besieged by both James IV and James V but was ultimately destroyed by Oliver Cromwell's troops in a siege of 1651. Many artefacts are displayed to help tell its dramatic stories.
