Free and no need to book, just come along.

Join the Scots in the Great War Living History training in the grounds of Lauriston Castle in the long summer before the outbreak of WW1. See displays of drill and bayonet fighting, handle original objects from the time and find out about the life of Scottish soldiers. This is for all the family to learn about history in a very fun and interactive way.
