Lindisfarne Castle

Lindisfarne was built in the 16th-century on Holy Island, near Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, England. The castle is located in what was once the very volatile border area between England and Scotland. Not only did the English and Scots fight, but the area was frequently attacked by Vikings. The castle sits on the highest point of the island, a whinstone hill called Beblowe and was more of a fort than a castle.
