Bamburgh Castle

Sunrise lights up the walls of Bamburgh Castle on the Northumberland coast in the North East of England. The site was originally the location of a Celtic Brittonic fort known as Din Guarie and may have been the capital of the kingdom of Bernicia from its foundation in c. 420 to 547. After passing between the Britons and the Anglo-Saxons three times, the fort came under Anglo-Saxon control in 590. The fort was destroyed by Vikings in 993, and the Normans later built a new castle on the site, which forms the core of the present one. After a revolt in 1095 supported by the castle's owner, it became the property of the English monarch.

The vertical poles mark the safe route across the tidal sands and mud of the Pilgrims Way, the ancient crossing way from the English mainland to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne on the Northumbrian coast of North East England.

It was not supposed to be like this...

The ruins of the Historic Tantallon Castle at sunset. This image was taken from Seacliff beach, East Lothian, Scotland, which lies a few miles along the coast to the east of North Berwick. The fading light silhouettes the castle beautifully however you wouldn't want to hang around for much longer because as soon as the darkness envelops the castle, the ghost will appear. Both the castle and the beach are well worth a visit if you are touring the area, and from both vantage points you will also get magnificent views of the Bass Rock sitting just offshore in the Firth of Forth.
