  • We absolutely loved our visit to Blackness Castle. There is so much to see. You really get to explore the castle and there is plenty of information about what you are looking at with regards to it's historic use. We have two boys (5&7) and they had a ball. Its quite uneven ground for walking on in the courtyard and there are heaps of stairs. But it is so worth a visit. The staff were all wonderful too.
  • £6 adult entry fee, worth the money. Not really any thing in the rooms in the castle but well worth a visit. I've been twice now.
  • Friendly and knowledgeable guides. Lots of potential for imagining the past. Great views bring a picnic to relax and look at the world.
  • Really enjoyed this castle. Lots of castle to see here on the edge of the ocean. Highly recommend!
  • Absolutely lovely little castle. Loved the way the natural rock was part of the flooring in some places. X
