Out on the wild and windy moor....etc
Part of the existing ruin has been assigned to the end of the 14th century, making this one of the oldest buildings in Fife, and there are traces of alterations made to the building during the 17th century. The castle was abandoned by its owners at the beginning of the last century. Neglect and lack of repairs, aided by the weather, soon reduced the building to a ruinous condition and today, some parts of the walls are all that remain.But still a good place for a quick, if cold, explore.

I've always wondered what this looks like close up, now I know. :) It's a pretty exposed spot, I bet you were questioning your sanity when you were half way there :lol:

I never cease to be awed by the fact that quite often the buildings you look at were put together hundreds of years ago.

What were these people thinking about when they were working? Was it like, "Feck me, not leftover boar in me sandwiches again."? Or maybe, "I wish somebody would hurry up and invent steel toecaps. That bloody hurt."

Ooh cheers chaps. Got a new camera a finepix s1000, sort of in between an slr and a compact. Seemingly I'm now an 'advanced amateur'. Only bad thing is it's a bit bulkier to cart around these places.
