Toni Frissell Where splendour falls on castle walls BLOW, BUGLE, BLOW! This is the grim, scarred for tress of Dunluce on the coast of Northern Ireland, ancient stronghold of warrior kings named MacQuillan, O'Neill and Sorley Boy Macdonnell. Dunluce is an other testament to Britain's fierce, rugged past. For cross reference, see Stirling Castle in Scotland where crum bled walls still echo the battle cry of Wallace's men. Or proud Harlech in Wales, inspiration for the stirring Welsh anthem "Men of Harlech, on to glory." You'll find a castle for every mood in Britain. Gloomy, frown- ing castles with battlements still haunted by the ghosts of murdered kings. Or story book castles like Sir Walter Scott's Kenilworth and Tintagel, legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Romantic castles? There's Royal Wind sor itself, where, arriving for her honeymoon, Queen Victoria wrote in her diary "1 and Albert alone, at last." There are hundreds of castles to see in Britain, each with its own fascinating story. And this includes Culzean, President Eisenhower's Scottish home during the war years.
