DUNNOTTAR Castle is firmly in the top 10 in the final weeks of a global vote to be named the “8th Wonder of the World.”

The iconic Aberdeenshire castle, one of Scotland’s most spectacular ruined fortresses, inspired Princess Merida’s family home in Disney-Pixar’s Brave.

It also doubled for Elsinore in Franco Zeffirelli’s Hamlet and was the clear winner for Scotland’s nomination for the contest earlier this year.

It has been revealed that the castle is still vying with Stonehenge, the Empire State Building and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge to win the worldwide vote when the public poll closes at the end of September in VirtualTourist.com’s global competition.
