Little Explorers Scottish Castles

Front cover of Little Explorers Scottish Castles

Lay siege to Stirling Castle, spot Nessie hiding at Urquhart Castle, have a feast with Mary, Queen of Scots, and escape Edinburgh Castle’s dungeons!

In this book, little explorers are introduced to Scotland’s history through its most famous castles. Moving parts let them pull up a portcullis, lower a drawbridge, tunnel out of the dungeons, blow up a tower and set off an amazing firework display.

Each page is inspired by a real Scottish castle. An ideal gift for visitors to Scotland, this large board book is chunky but lightweight with sturdy moving parts that are just the right size for little hands.
