- Inspired by rOcKeTdOg – What is your favourite castle?
I love Dunstanburgh – it’s just down the coast from my mam and dad. I think my favourite’s Duntulm on Skye. There’s not much of it left but it is etched in my memory from a rain-lashed ride round to the ferry at Uig. Hugely dramatic in the way it loomed out of the cloud.

Right, a proper one:
(I know I’m probbly going to get slagged off, and have people saying it’s rubbish, etc etc, but it is a very impressive castle, spanning a lot of history, and has seen so much stuff going on. Still works, too; has a barracks, and is used for all sorts of official functions. Has some impressive displays of armour and weaponry, and one or two shiny things…)
I do like some of the Welsh ones, too. I love Conwy; fantastic how they designed it with a railway line running through it!Posted 9 years ago
