Dumbarton Castle
West Dunbartonshire
Dumbarton Castle, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland

Not so much a castle as a natural fortified rock, an old volcanic core.

Dumbarton Castle has been a fortified site since before Roman times.

In passing the town and castle are Dumbarton (with an m) and the county is Dunbartonshire (with an n).

Dumbarton Rock is on the north bank of the River Clyde and guards the entrance to the river up to Glasgow.

An awkward subject to photograph with only limited space available on the river side.
