Classic Lindisfarne - Holy Island by 

A classic view of Lindisfarne Castle, taken shortly after sunrise.

Perched atop a rocky crag and only accessible over a causeway at low tide, Lindisfarne Castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect. Originally built as a Tudor fort to defend the area from nearby Scotland, its colourful past has also seen the castle used to protect Holy Island harbour and more recently as a coastguard station.

The castle was disused and in a poor state of repair when it was rescued and converted into a private house and holiday home in 1903 by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
