  • Very peaceful location by the sea, very well preserved and authentic. The price (5,50 per person) is very affordable compared to that of other castles in the country (for example Edinburgh Castle). If you have the chance to have a nice time, enjoy the view and a picnic. To get there from Edinburgh just take a train to Linlithgow then a bus to Blackness Inn F49 to Bo'Ness (schedules are available at the tourist office of Edinburgh).
