Tantallen Castle is near North Berwick. Linlithgow Palace might also be accessible to an extent.

If you want 'in' at night you are going to be toiling - most of the decent ones are all locked up at night.
When are you based and what sort of distance are you talking about?
Blackness on the Forth isn't far from the bridge but like Linlithgow, it is a bit of a brick

Thank you all. I will research them all over the next month. As mentioned it is the lock up that causes the problems. I need them to be open at night when no one is around.

St Andrews does look wow!

A little further south, places like Melrose abbey you may be able to photograph from Abbey way or Priors walk through the railings at night. Jedburgh Abbey should be equally accessible from Abbey Bridge End or Abbey Place. Kelso Abbey is also accessible from Bridge street or Abbey row, but as its much closer to the roads might not be ideal
