This highlander’s mark on the map of cultural British heritage brings back the living images of medieval Scotland. Built-in the 4th century as a place of worship by Saint Ninian, a missionary who selected this enchanting fortress on the edges of land in the Northern part of the Scottish landscape, Dunnottar Castle, to play a special role with a very religious message.
For the next 5 centuries, the Castle served as a place of worship until the 9th century when during the Viking’s attack King Donald II of Scotland was being killed. The consecutive 11 centuries of historical journey drew a few significant lines on the historical canvas of the Dunnottar Castle including the formation of a new church, a rather brutal visit of William Wallace who burnt the church and destroyed the castle. 15th century brought sir Wiliam Keith (a member of the first an the most powerful families in Scotland residing in the Dunnottar Castle) an honour to become first Earl Marischal coronated by James II.
