Whilst we have an operating bank account, delays in providing us with an on-line banking system have delayed the launch of our e-booking office. We are confident, this will be resolved soon.
Meantime, we are now able to accept bookings for registration and castle tours using a mail order downloadable form.
Details of evening activities will not be firmed up til later in the year, so bookings for our programme of historical talks and social events cannot yet be taken.
We are now fairly firm on how the programme will look for daytime events.
Monday 30th June: Visit Aberdour and Lochleven Castles
Tuesday 1st July: Visit Bothwell and Douglas Castles, the Douglas Heritage Museum and St Bride's Church
Wednesday 2nd July: Visit Dirleton and Tantallon Castles and Lennoxlove House
Thursday 3rd July: Visit Lincluden Abbey, Threave Castle and the Douglas Mausoleum
Friday 4th July: Tour Edinburgh, or a location of your choice
Saturday 5th July: Clan Muster at Drumlanrig Castle, with an opportunity to visit Morton Castle and the Queensberry Tomb.
On Sunday 6th July, we will be in Stirling, where a Kirkin o' the Tartan church service is planned. We will march with banners flying from the Castle to the Kirk. You will then have the opportunity to visit Stirling Castle, The Wallace Monument and the site of the Battle of Bannockburn.
We are considering offering a 'Golden Ticket' for those who book all four (Monday to Thursday) castle tours. This would give free access to both Edinburgh and Stirling castles (worth Â£30), as well as a further 70 Historic Scotland properties.
