Blackness Castle on the River Forth
One of the sites used for scenes in “Outlander”
Blackness Castle is on the south bank of the River Forth.
These were taken in late afternoon light hence the lengthening shadows
and the warm colours.
A few miles east of Bo’ness and not far from The House of the Binns it dates
back to at least the 1440s and has a long and chequered history including
being used as a munitions depot and a high-class prison.
You can see across the Forth to Charlestown directly opposite and Limekilns
to the right, both in Fife.
Culross is a little to the left - west - of this photograph on the north bank.
The building nearest the camera was built as a barracks in the 1870s and
the castle is now in the hands of Historic Scotland.
