Tantallon Castle is the last medieval curtain wall castle to be constructed in Scotland. Tantallon was built in the mid 14th century.

There is also a ghost story related to this castle. In March 2009, psychology professor Richard Wiseman released a photograph taken at Tantallon, which appeared to show a figure standing behind railings in a wall opening. Wiseman stated that no costumed guides were present at Tantallon, and that three photographic experts have confirmed that the image had not been manipulated. A second photo, taken 30 years earlier, and showing a different figure in a similar location, was printed in The Scotsman a few days later.
