I live in Dunbar and the harbour is about 0.5 miles from my home. The castle used to be one of the strongest in Scotland.

Alnwick Castle is in the north east of England, not far from the Scottish border. A former stronghold, it was recently in the news as part of the Harry Potter films were shot there.
