Blackness Castle Guidebook


Blackness Castle is known as ‘the ship that never sailed’, due to its nautical appearance. Learn its rich history with this official souvenir guide.

Blackness changed hands many times, having been originally built for Sir George Crichton during the 1440s. Crichton’s lands were passed to James II shortly after, and Blackness remains a crown property to this day.

This guide walks you through the dramatic history of this unusual site with ease.
