A Brief History of Dunnottar Castle, Scotland.


Brand-new contributor PeeJay brings us this marvelous drone video of Dunnottar Castle, a famous fortification in northeastern Scotland.  Located on a tiny peninsula in Aberdeenshire, the structure dates to the 15th-16th centuries.  Long believed to be virtually impregnable, the Scottish Crown Jewels were moved here for safekeeping during the English Civil War in the mid-17th century; it later played an important role in the 18th century Jacobite Uprising.  More recently, Dunnottar was used as a filming location for the 1996 movie Hamlet.
