The castles and fortresses are known to be monuments which protect in themselves the rich cultural pasts of the lands they belong to. Even in the face of ruins they stand upright. A prominent example of such romanticism is the Dunnottar Castle of Scotland which buries in its walls many stories of Scotland’s valour and richness.
Built on a cliff, upon the North Sea, the remains of the Dunnottar Castle grace the north east coast of Scotland at a distance of 3 kilometres from Stonehaven. The part of the castle that stands today is known to be dating back to the 15th or 16th centuries. However, as per history the actual fortification of the castle had started in the earlier half of the middle ages.
