This April, Historic Scotland are encouraging all of the fun and foolery you desire, with a fantastic programme of events that all of the family will love.
Have a Wild day Out with their Rangers at Holyrood Park on 14th April, as they join the RSPB to host Edinburgh’s first ‘worm charming competition’- yes you read that right! Or take part in a range of activities planned at both Holyrood and Linlithgow, with everything from toad hunting to becoming wildlife detectives available to join in with.
Take a look at some of the event highlights coming soon below, with even more opportunities to have fun and explore 5,000 years of history. Silliness is encouraged!
