    Default Castles, Ruins and Harry Potter :D (picture heavy)

    A recent holiday took us to the Scottish Borders and a small seaside village called Berwick-upon-Tweed.
    Being on the Borders of Scotland and on the East coast of England means that Berwick and the surrounding area has been a stronghold for England against not only Scottish invasion but also Roman and Viking invasions.
    It is therefor not surprising that there are many castles in the area in various states of disrepair.

    So for the pleasure of @Vicaroo1000 and @desertskybulldogs and those of you with an interest...I decided to post a few scenic holiday snaps taken by my wonderfully tallented hubby.

    Etal Castle.





    Ford castle.



    Horseshoe Forge..originally the village blacksmiths.



    Norham Castle



    Alnwick castle (Hogwarts n the first 2 movies)





    Of course you cant have Hogwarts without





    Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island



    and Lidisfarne castle.

    Wonderful pics. One day I will be back in the UK to see all these wonderful places.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
