Tour Scotland Video Driving To Tantallon Castle East Lothian

Tour Scotland video of driving on the A918 on ancestry visit to Tantallon Castle near North Berwick, Scotland. Tantallon Castle on the Firth of Forth, East Lothian. This is is a mid 14th century fortress, located three miles east of North Berwick. It was built by William Douglas, 1st Earl of Douglas. It was passed to his illegitimate son, later created Earl of Angus, and despite several sieges, it remained the property of his descendants for much of its history. It was besieged by King James IV in 1491, and again by his successor James V in 1528, when extensive damage was done. Tantallon saw action in the First Bishops' War in 1639, and again during Oliver Cromwell's invasion of Scotland in 1651.
