This is NOT an official Lego site
located in Edinburgh, was attacked and burned in 1544 by
the Earl of Hereford on behalf of Henry VIII, but was
rebuilt in time to host Mary, Queen of Scots in 1566-7.
It was at Craigmillar that she, Bothwell, Argyll, Huntly
and others plotted the murder of Mary's husband Darnley
in revenge for his killing of her secretary, David Rizzio.
picturesque castle began as an L-plan tower of 49 x 53
feet in 1374, and was enclosed by a massive curtail wall
in 1420, with cylindrical towers at each corner. Ranges
of outbuildings were added along three sides of the
curtain, which is 28' tall. The lower pictures I took at
this wonderful castle on a cloudy day in August 2000.
