Blackness Castle, a historic fortress and ancient monument, sits on a rocky peninsula jutting out into the Firth of Forth in West Lothian, Scotland.

The ruins are surrounded by seaweed-covered rocks and overlook the stunning seascape of the Forth Estuary. The castle's architecture, with its imposing gate and fence, is a testament to its former glory as a strategic stronghold.

The castle's history includes its use as a filming location for the popular TV series Outlander, as well as its role as the inspiration for the "Ship That Never Sailed" in Sir Walter Scott's novel The Bride of Lammermoor. Visitors can enjoy the castle's atmospheric surroundings and stunning views, or explore the nearby John Muir Way and Forth Bridges.
