Dance Information

Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress located upon a precipitous rocky headland on the north-east coast of Scotland, about two miles (3 km) south of Stonehaven.

Its surviving buildings are largely of the 15th-16th centuries, but an important fortress certainly existed on this site from Dark Age times.
