Blackness Castle, River Forth
Blackness Castle is on the south bank of the River Forth.
A few miles east of Bo'ness and not far from The House of the Binns, it dates back to at least the 1440s and has a long and chequered history including being used as a munitions depot and a high-class prison.
The building nearest the camera was built as a barracks in the 1870s and the castle is now in the hands of Historic Scotland.
You can see across the Forth to Charlestown (directly opposite)
and Limekilns (to the right) both in Fife.
Culross is a little to the left (west) of this photo on the north bank.
The images shown on this website are reduced and compressed .jpg versions of much larger images.
These versions are ideal for showing the quality and character of 197 aerial photography's work.
Full-sized files for licensed commercial use are available when required up to at least 5,000 pixels wide and
as you would expect they all show a great deal more detail and clarity than these website-quality versions.
