Blackness Castle - River Forth
Blackness Castle on the south bank of the River Forth.
These were taken in late afternoon light hence lengthening shadows
and 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 photo on the north bank.
A longer lens to show the barracks block.
The building nearest the camera was built as a barracks in the 1870s and the castle is now
in the hands of Historic Scotland.
A closer view.
