Details

Visitors can expect an explosive time accompanied by the sound of musket fire as the soldiers help keep the fortress safe from invasion. Throughout the weekend the Highlanders will be in the parade ground demonstrating a series of military manoeuvres including drills, bayonet use, sword techniques and barrack cookery. The battlefield doctor will also be ready to show off some examples of gruesome Georgian surgical practices in amputation, bullet extraction and teeth removal!
