Blackness Castle

Blackness Castle sits out at the end of a prominory close to the village of Blackness on the south side of the Firth of Forth. It is a 15th century fortress and most likely built on the site of an earlier fort by Sir George Chriichton in the 1440’s. Around his time Blackness was the main port for the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow which was one of the main residencies of the Scottish monarchy.

Due to its position jutting out into the Firth of Forth the castle has been called “the ship that never sailed”.

Blackness Castle was used in the TV series Outlander to represent Fort William, where Jamie had received lashes from Captain Randall.

If visiting the castle a great place to stop for a meal is The Lobster Pot in Blackness, a brightly coloured pub with some great food and beers.
