Rothesay Castle

Some photos of a day trip (by bus) to Rothesay, where there's a very, very old castle. First erected in 1204, it's gone through some owners since then. Vikings captured it in 1228, then the Scots got it back around 1263. Additions and renovations since then, but it's now a museum. Closed at lunchtime, which is why all the photos are from the outside. The moat is fantastic, complete with swans (which aren't in any pictures, oops).
