Tour Scotland Video Dunbar Castle East Lothian
Tour Scotland video of the ruins of the Castle at Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland. For almost a thousand years the East Lothian fortress of Dunbar has been at the centre of events in Scottish history. The impregnable castle site in Dunbar harbour was defended by the Votadini tribe in Roman times, held by Northumbrian and Pictish warriors in Scotland's 'dark ages' and was finally captured by Kenneth MacAlpin, King of Scots in 849 AD.
