CLANS STORM THE CASTLE
More than 30 clansmen and clanswomen marched to the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle to mark a hugely momentous occasion in Scotland’s history. This is the first time that Scotland’s clans have been welcomed into the Castle since the Highland Clans marched to the City of Edinburgh to lay siege to the Castle during the Jacobite uprisings in 1745. The gathering was organised by The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo which is celebrating its own ties with the Scottish Diaspora this year. Clan members were treated to a guided tour of the medieval surroundings of the Great Hall, courtesy of Edinburgh Castle’s Governor, Major General Mike Riddell-Webster.
