Hey, Willie Winkie, are ye comin' ben? The cat's singin' grey thrums to the sleepin hen, The dog's speldert on the floor and disnae gie a cheep - But here's a waukrif laddie that wanna fa' asleep.'

Dunnottar Castle, part 1 [04:51]
Ownership of a tower house was a crucial status symbol for a powerful nobleman in the late 14th-century Scotland.

The great door used to be even greater - it was reduced in the 17th century. The path to the main entrance is dominated by a knife-edge ridge which used to have a low wall round the edge. Then, as any attacker prepared a battering ram to stave in the great door, the warriors on the parapet would have an assortment of boulders, arrows and boiling liquids available to make the task more challenging.
