Edinburgh, Stirling and Urquhart Castles are now open, please book your tickets online in advance. We are working hard to open other sites in the coming weeks



Visit a rare example of a Lowland broch – a uniquely Scottish fortification, usually found only in the north. 

Edin’s Hall is One of the very few Iron Age brochs in lowland Scotland, surrounded by the remains of a fort built around 2,500 years ago. Nearby is the nationally important Abbey St Bathans Woodland.

The site as a whole is extraordinarily complex. The site is reached by an exhilarating hike along the Whiteadder Water.
