The Dance of the Unicorns
Map point seven:
Inspired by the painted Royal coat of arms in James VI birth chamber (Crown Square) the lion and unicorns are here transformed in ways which the fully grown, and highly sophisticated, King James could never have imagined at court.
The site here is Foog's Gate, thought to be named because of the thick haar which sometimes shrouds the Castle Rock… a foggy gate indeed.
