Name Our Bear!

Teddy Bear at Edinburgh Castle

We have a gorgeous teddy bear that will become a brand new addition to our gift shops. These little visitors are exclusive to Edinburgh Castle, and are limited edition – only 1500 are being made, with each one individually numbered.

However, our bear is nameless at the moment and this is where you can help! We need you to get your thinking caps on and come up with a name for the bear.  Post your suggestion to our Facebook Page for the chance to win a visit to Edinburgh Castle, sumptuous afternoon tea in our Queen Anne Tea Room and of course your very own newly named bear!
