Wooden Door And Knocker

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.

One of the things I love about exploring the (mostly ruined) castles of Britain is when I come across an old-fashioned door like this. Maybe it was too many wood-working classes as a child, but I’m a sucker for admiring wood grain. You can keep your modern, form-fitted plastic world … for real beauty, you can’t beat the look and feel of wood.
