Description

Prepare to be transported back in time to the 15th century as you step into Blackness Castle on the banks of the River Forth.

This formidable fortress, once a crucial stronghold, now welcomes visitors to explore its dark chambers and climb the battlements for stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Located just a short drive from Edinburgh, Blackness Castle is steeped in history and played a vital role in defending Scotland against English invaders during the Wars of Independence.
