What travelers say:

The Dark Castle was built in the 15th century for the then most powerful Crichtons in Scotland, in the small town of Blackness, in the north west of Edinburgh. The Dark Castle was used as a royal castle, building and armoury. In recent years, the castle has been restored and opened to the public. It has been a location for many well-known films, including Hamlet (1990), The Bruce (1996), BBC TV drama Ivanhoe (1997), and the science fiction film Doomsday (2008). The Dark Castle is also called the “Never-Going Boat” because it looks like a huge stone boat. From the castle you can enjoy the beautiful views of the bay around.
