Today's castle of the day obviously has to be Dunnottar castle in Scotland. It offers as close to a perfect natural defense as you are likely to find anywhere. A Pictish fort was recently excavated on a seastack called Dunnicaer which lies just to the north of Dunnotar and many such naturally defended sites may have existed. Very few have been professionally excavated.
