Thirlestane Castle, Lauder, Berwickshire
The Scots Brigade are coming, coming again to Thirelstane Castle over the weekend 28th/29th July. Formed initially in to compliment the Royalist and Parliamentarian armies of the Sealed Knot Society which is the largest re-enactment Society in the UK a registered educational charity, and the single biggest re-enactment society in Europe.
So what can you expect to see at Thirelstane Castle, during the weekend, Cannon will Roar, Pike will Engage, Drums will beat, Muskets will Volley and a Living History Camp will bring to life that period when Father fought Son, Brother fought Brother and the Country was in turmoil. Talk with the re-enactors, some of whom have travelled over 400 miles from West Sussex to take part at this prestigious venue, others live more locally, but their commitment to their hobby and the long term friendships that abound means they offer support at events when and where they can.
