Lindisfarne Castle by Glenn Gilbert

The castle was built in 1550, around the time that nearby Lindisfarne Priory went out of use, and stones from the priory were used as building material. It is a small castle by usual standards, and was more of a fort.

The castle sits on the highest point of the island. The entrance to the castle is quite dramatic and involves a steep climb around the rocky base. It is said that, when the future George V and Queen Mary visited in 1908, they were alarmed by the slope and the cobbled surface.
