    Fans of Outlander may recognise this as Fort William but its actually Blackness Castle on the Firth of Forth. Originally built in the 15th century, its been used as a royal castle, a prison and a weapons store, witnessing much horror and history over the years. Its said the castle prison is haunted by a knight in full armour who once chased a female visitor and her children out of the tower. There are also many reports of unexplained noises like furniture moving across cold stone floors, despite the rooms being empty for decades. Tristan Gale, Personal Banker in our Dalkeith branch, took this photo from the tri-gun emplacement. It shows the castle as it would have been viewed by one of its gunners back in the 15 and 1600s. He says its also a great view of the three bridges across the Forth. If you feel brave enough to visit Blackness Castle, its open Saturday - Wednesday, 10am 4pm. #RealScotland https://www.historicenvironment.scot/visit-a-place/places/blackness-castle/

    As a full time Programme Manager here at Royal Bank, a father of 2 and a volunteer sports coach Damien Gilmore has a very busy schedule. But earlier this year, he found time to train 400 kids in CPR in just a few short months. As part of his sports coaching Damien is already a qualified first aider and proficient in CPR. So when he heard that Royal Bank had pledged to train 40,000 colleagues in CPR he spotted an opportunity to help his local community. Damien started by going into his sons primary school in Kirkliston and training the P5 and 6 classes. British Heart Foundation says this is the age when kids are strong enough to practice CPR. After that he taught the kids he coaches at a local golf club, as well as local football and rugby clubs. By the end of this year he hopes to have trained up to 600 local children. Damien says the response from the kids has been genuinely amazing and that the more people who complete CPR training in our communities, the better. If you're interested in learning CPR or, like Damien, you'd like to volunteer to take these skills out into your local community visit the British Heart Foundation website here https://www.bhf.org.uk/heart-health/how-to-save-a-life

    A common kind of vishing scam is where customers are called by someone claiming to be from Royal Bank. The fraudster tells you that there has been attempt to hack your account and that to keep your money safe you must transfer it to a 'secure' account. This is a scam. Always remember that if you are asked to provide personal or financial information, you should take five minutes to think about what is being asked before taking any action. If you receive a call that sounds suspicious hang up immediately. We will never ever ask you to transfer funds to another bank to keep them safe.

    Weve had reports of scammers calling vulnerable customers and tricking them into transferring funds. Customers are being asked to go to their bank and leave their mobile on the counter so the scammer can hear the conversation and sometimes even give the customer instructions. Colleagues in our branches are looking out for this. Please help us by warning anyone who you think could fall victim. Remember to never give away personal details. If someone calls you and it sounds suspicious, hang up the phone immediately. Go here for more information on phone scams: http://personal.rbs.com/personal/security-centre/vishing.html
