Travel back to summer in Scotland with me in this two part series where I share my film photos. In this first part: Tantallon Castle.
On the east coast of Scotland, about an hour’s drive from Edinburgh, towers the ruin of a once magnificent castle. Tantallon Castle was built in 1350 right on the edge of the cliffs and standing on its still quite sturdy walls, you can look out over the sea and Bass Rock. It’s the perfect place to visit on a sunny day and – extra bonus points for Historic Scotland – you can bring your dog!
Once you’ve taken in all of the views of the cliffs and the history of the castle itself, treat yourself to tea and scones at DRIFT. It’s a 15 minute walk from the castle and it’s definitely worth a visit. DRIFT is dog-friendly as well, so you can either bring your own dog along or cuddle with other visitor’s dogs while enjoying coffee and sweets – which is like heaven on earth. Everything they prepare in the kitchen is made with either local or Scottish produce, which I think is really cool.
Fun fact: Tantallon Castle was one of the filming locations of Under the skin, starring Scarlett Johansson. Sadly ScarJo wasn’t present when I was there, but I could definitely feel her presence.
This was the first of two Summer in Scotland posts. So keep an eye out for the second installment, featuring not one but two castles. As you can understand, I could hardly contain my excitement that day. If you want to see more film photos in the meantime, but sure to check out my film photo diary from Down The Rabbit Hole 2019.
