A distance view does not tell very well, but this castle has nice round towers on its corners. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlech_Castle And this stamp was one of the first set with "silhouette" portrait of Queen, adapted by David Gentleman from coinage.

Kronborg Castle has a kind of peaceful appearance from distance, so I am surprised when I see the picture of its moat. The first castle was build in 15th century and transformed as a fort in 1585. It is refered as the stage of Shakespeare's play Hamlet.
