A CHEEKY pony photobombed a stunning picture of one of Scotland’s most historic castles.

Johnny Edwards, 67, set up the perfect shot of the 14th-century Tantallon Castle which overlooks the Firth of Forth in North Berwick.

But just as he pressed the shutter, a small pony popped its head into the frame.

A pair of fluffy ears and bright eyes stare into the lens as his mane whips around his forehead – obscuring some of the breathtaking view.

To add insult to injury, the ballsy chap then appeared to boldly wink at the camera.

He even looks as if he is smiling as he has his photo taken.

Johnny, from Livingston, West Lothian, said: “I was out for a drive with my wife when I thought I’d jump out and get a nice picture of the castle.

“I just saw the pony’s head pop up, it did make me laugh.

“I never even saw his body, but he managed to get his head in the way.

“I’m just an amateur photographer but this has to be one of my favourite photographs.”

Tantallon Castle is a semi-ruined mid-century fortress which sits opposite the famous Bass Rock.

It saw action in the First Bishops’ War in 1639 and again during Oliver Cromwell’s invasion of Scotland in 1651 when it was severely damaged.
