The romantic ruins of the Red Castle of Lunan, Angus, Scotland.

The Red Castle of Lunan is a ruined fortified house on the coast of Angus, Scotland.
Red Castle stands on high ground overlooking Lunan Bay, on the North Sea coast. Only a part of the fifteenth century rectangular tower, and the 2 metre thick east wall remain.
The castle is referred to as "rubeum castrum" (Latin for "Red Castle") in deeds of the thirteenth century, referring to its burnished red sandstone, typical of this area.
