Blackness Castle

Forth Valley Tourist Route

Attention Outlander TV fans! This impressive 15th century fortress, which juts out into the Firth of Forth, was the filming location for the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall in the popular series. Small screen appearances aside, Blackness Castle has a fascinating history as a royal residence, a garrison fortress and an ammunition depot. On route here you can also stop off at Hopetoun House, a stately home and gardens. Nearby you’ll find the grand House of the Binns, a 17th century country home and parkland.
