Practical Info

To visit Blackness Castle, take a train or bus from Edinburgh to Linlithgow and from there, catch bus 49 to Blackness. The journey should take between an hour and a half to two hours. A narrow road leads from the village of Blackness to the car park just south of the castle. The more adventurous might instead opt to hike from Falkirk, starting at the Carriden Parish Church and following the edge of the River Forth for about two hours.

Lovely Sail

Award winning Blackness Castle, Three Bridges Cruise with Cream Tea
Lovely 90 minutes sail around the 3 bridges and upper reaches of the Firth of Forth (we’d previously done the sail that heads downstream, so wanted to do a different sail). The accompanying commentary was interesting and informative. Helped by beautiful weather, but would be worth doing even if the weather wasn’t quite as nice. I’ll never tire of the sight of the 3 bridges.
