Yesterday my daughter and I had a brilliant time at St Andrews Castle with our amazing friend Nick. We were there to talk about the Picts for our friends at History Matters Limited and Historic Environment Scotland.
Although the castle itself is temporarily out of bounds to visitors (it needs masonry checks after the recent storms), they could still learn a chunk of Scottish history and see some replica items from ancient times.
History Matters have loads of reenactors visiting HES properties throughout the summer and October holidays and you can find out more by going to their

You can find out which HES properties have visits from their many characters by going to Historic Environment Scotland’s Events page and filtering the results by “Living History” – but here’s a handy link that will do all that for you! 🙂
