This week’s theme is Tantallon Castle, on the Scottish coastline in East Lothian just outside North Berwick. We visited it in September 2010 whilst exploring the coastline north of Berwick upon Tweed, and we were instantly captivated by its wonderful setting on the coast with the backdrop of Bass Rock.
The green stone cladding on the Mid Tower (aka the Fore Tower) is very unusual, and really stands out against the red stone used to build the rest of the curtain wall of Tantallon. Historic Scotland were part-way through restoring the cladding, allowing us to get a good idea of what this will look like when the work is complete.
