Ruins of Tantallon Castle

Tantallon Castle is unique in that it only has this one defencive wall. The castle sits on top of cliffs on a promontory of land protruding into the Firth of Forth. This huge wall is all that is required to secure the castle. In its 300 year history it endured three sieges. Map location.
