Elegantly and defiantly purchased on the coast at Stonehaven, Scotland, Dunnottar was a fortress. Over 100 steps to reach the castle entrance with every step worth the view! Location, location, location!
Added to my ever growing Bucket List. Castles, forts, fortresses, and similar fortifications are high on my list of things to see although in actuality, they tend to be low on the affordability level of my Bucket List. I have only seen a couple of castles, one fort, and one fortress in person.
