It's 1579 and Regent Morton is coming to besiege Craignethan Castle over continued Hamilton support for Mary Queen of Scots following her forced abdication. 

Come and meet one of Hamilton’s men and hear about siege warfare in the sixteenth century. Get hands-on and feel the weight of the arms and armour of the time while you take the opportunity to brush up on your pike, sword and buckler skills.
