Scope and Content 18th-century print of St Andrews Castle, Fife St Andrews Castle, the seat of the bishop of St Andrews, was destroyed during the Wars of Independence and rebuilt in its present form by Bishop Traill (1385-1401). It was besieged in 1546-7 after Protestants assassinated Cardinal Beaton. This print presents a romanticised and inaccurate view of the castle. It is chiefly of interest because it appears to show a solid causeway bridging the moat to the south-east main entrance. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
