Ali's epicCoastal Castles
The east of Scotland is home to some of the most breathtaking coastal castles around! Whether you're out for the day, or making a trip across the country - here are my must-sees!
You can't visit the Firth of Forth without stopping by Blackness Castle! Mighty fortifications make this 15th-century castle look like a ‘ship that never sailed’. It was originally a peaceful lordly residence, however, its enduring roles were as a garrison fortress and state prison...
Did you know?
Blackness Castle has become a popular filming location, starring in productions such as 'Outlander', 'Outlaw King' and now 'Mary Queen of Scots'! Star-struck much??
Make the most of the coast!
If you're visiting Scotland on a short trip, and you want to see as many amazing castles as you can, I'd recommend an Explorer Pass! For history-hunters looking to explore all year round, you should maybe look into a Historic Scotland Membership!
