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.
Deep windows in the Great Hall looking West.
The Curtain Wall protecting the Central Tower that once housed a prison.
