Dunnottar Castle
Dunnottar Castle
An early castle here was captured by William Wallace from
the English in 1296, one story relating that he burned 4000 
Englishmen here. Edward III of England took the castle in 
the 1330's and strengthened it, but it was quickly recaptured
by Sir Andrew Moray,  the Regent.  The Keiths acquired
the property in 1382.

Dunnottar was attacked, the crown jewels were lowered 
down the back of the castle to a peasant woman 
posing as a seaweed gatherer.
