Cottage Scotland Balgonie Castle Fife- Saltair Flag

This dramatic photograph of the Scottish flag was taken on an interesting trip around
Balgonie Castle Fife
Our national flag, the white saltire on a blue ground, the oldest flag in the British Commonwealth, is said to have originated in a battle fought, a little more than a mile from present day Markle, in the Parish of Prestonkirk in East Lothian, in the Dark Ages between the Picts and Scots on one side and the Angles of Northumbria on the other.
