Rothesay Castle

Cross the drawbridge over the moat and climb the ‘bloody stair’ to the circular ramparts, or descend into a forbidding pit prison. This doughty stronghold, built in the 1200s, was twice besieged and captured by the Norse, who battered down the eastern wall with their axes. A short film tells this remarkable story.

The castle has also been a royal base: Robert III died here and James IV used it to launch campaigns against the Lords of the Isles.
