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.
I can’t write about Tantallon Castle without mentioning Bass Rock, out in the Forth of Firth, and clearly visible from the castle. You can clearly see the automated lighthouse from the shore, as well as the huge gannet colony that forms the rock’s only inhabitants.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photos, and that they have inspired you to go and visit Tantallon Castle yourself when you get the chance. I’ll be back on Monday with the first set of photos from the amazing Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
