Lindisfarne Castle Photo Tour

I was surprised that Lindisfarne Castle was open when we visited Holy Island in early March; usually it doesn’t open until Easter. It’s one of the few National Trust properties I’ve been to which allow non-flash photography in the interior. The Castle  was built as fort in the 16th century but ended up, very appropriately, as the holiday home of the founder of Country Life magazine.
