The entrance to Victoria Harbour in Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland.

Victoria Harbour was built in 1844 on the ruins of the former Dunbar Castle. A new entrance for Dunbar’s harbours was blasted through the end of the rock on which the castle ruins stood: indeed, the process of firing explosives by electricity was invented especially for the job. In the process of course, most of the remaining ruins of the castle were destroyed. Fragmentary remains of what was once one of the mightiest castles in Scotland can still be seen on either side of the harbour entrance.

Camera: Canon EOS 60D

    Wonderful composition & processing, Tom. I remember the story of Dunbar Castle & its ignominious end… withstood all but ‘modern’ technology. Haven’t been on the Bubble much lately thanks to a seemingly endless inner-ear problem that keeps me wobbling & also affects my ability to look at the computer screen. But it IS getting better… s-l-o-w-l-y. I’ve looked at most of your recent work… the usual lovely bunch.

  • Sorry to hear you have been unwell Sheila, best wishes for your speedy recovery. Glad you like the shot and I know that, like me, you love the history …
