Elgin Castle
Elgin Castle
These piles of rubble are the remains of what was once Elgin Castle. It stood on the top of Lady Hill, dominating the town. It met the same fate as many another mediaeval Scottish Castle; King Robert the Bruce could not afford the men to garrison it after capturing it from the English, so he had them tear it down to prevent the enemy re-occupying it.
