Dramatic. Evocative. There is something mystical, almost unbelievable about the ruined cliff top fortress that is Dunnottar Castle. But there it is, perched on the edge of a cliff, open to the elements of the sea.
Once the home of the earls Marischal, it is stunningly beautiful but haunting. It was a fortress that was almost impenetrable and worth a visit if only to take a cursory glance into its rich past. Open from 10 am during the spring and summer months, a must-visit when in Stonehaven.
