TANTALLON CASTLE Tantallon Castle 003 Tantallon Castle Continued
A curious etymology of the name Tantallon is traditionally preserved in the Country. ie. that the two Architects of the Castle Thomas and Allan, obtained permission from the proprietor to inscribe their own names on the front of the building in large Roman letters, which ran thus, Tam et Allan, hence the name the Country people give it Viz Tam-t-allan,
This ruin is beautifully and most accurately described by the author of Marmion.
