We are delighted to showcase our event programme for Autumn/Winter 2023. Over the next few months we have a wide range of exciting events, guided walks and exhibitions everyone can enjoy. 

Historic Scotland daytime events are free to members unless otherwise stated. We’ve shared a selection of our fantastic events and activities below.

Your membership gives you the fantastic opportunity to experience the best events and activities we have on offer including the return of our fabulous evening event Castle of Light: Mystery and Magic at Edinburgh Castle! We also have a number of themed events to tie in with the season. Join us for some Halloween shenanigans at Craigmillar Castle and take part in our potion maker's quest at various sites.

We also have a range of Ranger-led walks, at sites such as Holyrood Park in Edinburgh for Arthur's Secrets and Arthur’s Amble, as well as our Ring of Brodgar and Stenness and Barnhouse Walks in Orkney. 

Our roaming exhibition Carving out Connections: Scotland’s Rock Art is a fantastic way to explore some of Scotland's greatest mysteries.
