Ancestry Tours of Ravenscraig Castle Fife Scotland
Ancestry Tours of Ravenscraig Castle, Fife, Scotland. The remains of Ravenscraig Castle are seated upon a cliff to the east of the harbour. The castle was built in 1460 under the order of James II but, still incomplete, was exchanged by James III for Kirkwall Castle with the Sinclair Earls of Orkney. The castle is thought to have been one of the first in Scotland to be designed for defence against artillery.
