With Father’s Day just around the corner, treat your dad to a day out at Edinburgh Castle on Sunday 21st June!

To kick it all off, we have a local choir performing in the Great Hall, and throughout the day we will welcome a member of Dr Elise Inglis’ WW1 committee who will share their incredible tales.  Also, you have the opportunity to see the two rare Regimental Colours on display which were taken into the Battle of Waterloo by the 3rd Battalion the Royal Scots.
