A Castle visit in the sun

Two sunny weekends in a row – fantastic.  Long may it continue!

This weekend we went on a little outing along the coastline of the Firth of Forth to Blackness Castle.  It is a Historic Scotland property and well worth an explore.  From the seaward angle, the castle is shaped like a ship that has run aground. Visitors are able to explore the two main buildings and walk around the castle walls.

The ‘Main Mast Tower’ sits in a rocky, jagged courtyard.
