Rosyth Castle
Rosyth Castle
The castle was originally a three-storey tower-house built in the late 15th century for Sir James Stewart, and once stood on a small island in the Firth of Forth. It was sacked by Oliver Cromwell in 1650 and passed to the Earls of Rosebery in the 18th century. By the 1860s it belonged to the Earl of Hopetoun. The surrounding land was reclaimed and became part of the Royal Dockyard by the early 20th century.
