There must be very few castles in the world with a location as stunning as that of Dunnotar Castle. This beautiful ruin is set on a huge rock sitting out to sea which is only accessible via lots of steps. However, it is more than worth the climb. There are various areas to look at, each with a view either out to see or into the adjoining small bays. The ruins are fascinating and it is wonderful to imagine how the castle must have been when it was occupied.
Absolutely worth the drive, I would say this is one of the world's must-see castles.
