If you can storm this fortress, you'll have earned your stripes! In this event for all ages, you can dress up as a soldier and go on your first mission in the setting of this mighty, military building - to follow one of our exciting, new Museum trails! You can hear just why a mud-stained kilt and a bible with a bullet-hole deserve a place in our collection. And discover more about the war horses who were sent to fight in the First World War - and the men who rode them. Book early to take part in our fun, craft activity session to make your own reminder of your exciting day at the Highlanders’ Museum. This is a wonderful chance to see our military history brought to life in a beautiful coastal location.
