Dunnottar Castle, Nr Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire
Dunnottar Castle dates from the 13th century. The site of an earlier Pictish fort, it stands on a natural promontory surrounded on three sides by the sea, protected by 50 metre cliffs and a natural ditch at the front. It came under attack from both William Wallace (1297) and the Marquess of Montrose (1645). Franco Zefferelli featured it in his movie ‘Hamlet’, starring Mel Gibson and Glenn Close.
Although privately owned, the castle is open to the public and is a popular tourist attraction.
