Over 100 years after the Honours of Scotland were packed away following the Act of Union, Walter Scott was given permission by King George to search the Castle and bring them out of storage.

Come along and find out about their 'rediscovery’, and about an earlier time when the Regalia were buried to keep them safe from Cromwell’s army.

Times: 11.15am, 12.15pm, 2.00pm & 3.00pm



This event is included in the normal admission price. Buy your tickets online in advance to beat the queues or purchase on the day.
