Dunnottar Castle Review
It's hard to beat the magnificent cliff-top ruins of Dunnottar Castle, especially with the panoramic views of the North Sea. Building began in the 14th century, when Sir William Keith, Marischal of Scotland (keeper of the king's mares), decided to build a tower house to demonstrate his power. Subsequent generations added to the structure, and important visitors included Mary, Queen of Scots. The castle is most famous for holding out for eight months against Oliver Cromwell's army in 1651 and 1652, and thereby saving the Scottish crown jewels, which had been stored here for safekeeping. Reach the castle via the A90; take the Stonehaven turnoff and follow the signs. Wear sensible shoes, and allow about two hours.
