Blackness Castle is often referred to as ‘the ship that never sailed’ due to the mighty fortifications that make the 15th-century castle look like an ocean-going vessel. The castle has been used as a royal residence, prison, artillery fortification, and fortress over the centuries, and now as one of Scotland’s most impressive strongholds is a popular tourist attraction.
