The Scotch Coast

Tantallon Castle

Raphael Tuck & Sons' "Oilette" Postcard 7061

Rough Seas, Scotch Coast. Series I.

Art Publishers to their Majesties the King & Queen

Tantallon Castle. The date of building and the builder's name of this old sea-fortress of the Douglesses are both alike unknown. It belonged to the Earls of Angus at the accession of Robert II, was frequently besieged and always held to be impregnable, but was at last taken by the Covenanters in 1637, and is now a dismantled and decaying ruin.

[The painting reproduced on this postcard is attributed to the British artist G. E. Newton.]
