Join The Black Watch Castle and Museum for their annual Summer Festival. This Army life themed event promises to be a fun-filled family day, out brimming with interactive entertainment, live music, fun hands-on activities, crafts, tours and much more.

The festival will open at 11am with a performance from the world famous Pipes and Drums of The Black Watch.

All young visitors will be invited to join the Junior Black Watch Battalion. The new recruits will receive their enlistment card and be given the mission of completing exciting activities throughout the day.
