Blackness Castle
Blackness Castle
The distinctive ship design of Blackness Castle seen from the landing jetty; the left tower was known as the Stem Tower, the right as the Stern Tower. Probably built in the 15th century it became a royal castle in 1453 when James II of Scotland annexed the surrounding lands. For much of its history it has been used as a prison, holding French prisoners of war in the 18th and 19th centuries.
