    This was built in the 14h century and then strengthened as an artillery fortress in the 16th century. In the 1870s it became an ammunition depot before being restored in the 1920s. It was used as the setting for the film Ivanhoe.

    I love the views over the Firth of Forth - and it has family memories also as my aunt made the cake that was cut at the opening of the road bridge.

    Closed on Thursday afternoons and Fridays in winter.

    4 miles north of Linlithgow on the shore of the Firth of Forth off the A904 - with lovely views of both bridges
