Tour Scotland Video Christmas Day Castle St Andrews Fife

Tour Scotland Christmas Day video of the castle and coast on ancestry visit to St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. On a headland by the coast stand the ruins of the city's castle, which was the main residence of the bishops and archbishops of St Andrews. Protestant preacher George Wishart was imprisoned in the castle’s bottle dungeon. Cardinal Beaton’s murdered body was kept in the dank and airless dungeon. The assassination sparked the brutal siege of 1546, when opposing sides dug into the rock close to the castle battlements.
