Tour Scotland Video Boat Passing Broughty Castle Firth Of Tay

Tour Scotland video of a boat passing Broughty Castle, on the Firth of Tay by Dundee, Scotland. Broughty Castle was erected in 1490 by the 2nd Lord Gray, on a charter from King James IV, in response to increased English naval activity. It was taken without a shot fired by the English in 1547, and reclaimed by the Scots two and a half years later. The castle fell back into English hands in 1651. In 1860 the threat of French invasion prompted Broughty’s conversion from a ruin to a modern artillery defence. The castle was further altered in response to the German threat in the two world wars.
