Fast Castle and its Owners : some Notes on their History
1549, Fourteenth Century
The ruined castle stands on a rocky promontory on the Berwickshire coast. Only parts of the keep and the surrounding walls now survive. An account of the ownership and history of the castle is presented along with plans and pictures, the earliest of which dates back to 1549. It is not clear who was responsible for the construction of the castle though during the fourteenth century the castle appears to have been sometimes in the hands of the Scots and sometimes in those of the English.
