ETAL CASTLE

ETAL CASTLE
ETAL CASTLE

Etal Castle began life as a defensive tower on the troubled Anglo-Scottish border. Of necessity, it was later enlarged, but its most famous moment was probably when it was captured by King James IV of Scotland and his enormous army, just before their defeat at nearby Flodden on 9 September 1513. Etal is ruined now, but there is a fascinating exhibition, the location is lovely and the village is charming.
