CLANS STORM THE CAS­TLE

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - News -

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.
