The Black Watch Castle and Museum Perth
We're all going to a Summer Festival!
Give the kids something to look forward to these Summer holidays with The Black Watch Castle and Museum’s Summer Festival of the Castle.
Let’s face it, occupying the kids can seem like a never ending (impossible) task on the best of days, never mind during the holidays which is why we are excited to tell you all about the Black Watch Castle and Museum’s Summer Festival of the Castle this Saturday 27th July!
Join The Black Watch Castle and Museum for their annual Summer Festival.
This Army life themed event promises to be a fun-filled family day, out brimming with interactive entertainment, live music, fun hands-on activities, crafts, tours and much more.
The festival will open at 11am with a performance from the world-famous Black Watch Pipes and Drums.
All young visitors will be invited to join the Junior Black Watch Battalion. The new recruits will receive their enlistment card and be given the mission of completing exciting activities throughout the day. They can then attend the passing out parade and be awarded with medals by their commanding officer!

Scotland's Black Watch is an elite military regiment whose history stretches back almost three centuries. The Museum is housed in the dramatic and historic Balhousie Castle. The castle itself is set in beautiful gardens and grounds. A visit to this ancestral home of The Black Watch truly brings this glorious regiment's past vibrantly to life.
This is very much a family friendly museum where they run a whole host of entertaining and educational events; definitely a great venue for a family day out in Perth.
