From Sir Walter Scott's
Provincial Antiquities and Picturesque Scenery of Scotland (Vol. II)
"The mouldering ruins of the Castle, with its tremendous triple tier of vaults, were long the abode of the proud family of the St Clairs, whose titles at one period of their history would have wearied a herald ... This mouldering fabric has been often described in detail, with all the legendary additions extracted from Father Hay's manuscript."
|Roslin Castle, built in the
cliffs of Roslin Glen.
