Busy, busy, busy!

It’s been a while since the page has been updated, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been doing anything! We’ve been busy with filming, including the Starz TV series Outlander, documentaries, a Norwegian TV series and Hollywood movies! It’s not just about filming though, as our newly updated EVENTS guide shows. Use the drop-down Events menu for more details of upcoming events.

This year kicks off with our fantastic Easter event, which looks at Scandinavian and Eastern European traditions involving Witches, along with traditional Easter fun for all ages.

We are also looking forward to a Summer of Music with Saor Patrol making a rare Scottish appearance at our Spirit of DunCarron event. If that wasn’t enough, we are extremely proud and delighted to be hosting the Pandora Fest. at The Village. This festival showcases the best in female talent, and promises to be a truly amazing event.

There will be a bit of an Outlander feel to the Spirit of DunCarron event with a Jacobite theme. Visitors will be able to learn more about Scotland in the 17th & 18th centuries, as we bring to life the sites and sounds of this often turbulent period in Scottish history. We stay in the 17th century as we bring Pirates to life in the historic Royal Burgh of Culross. This amazing event is in association with The National Trust for Scotland and will be one of the truly unique events in Scotland this year.

After the huge success of the inaugural Mary Queen of Scots Festival last year, we are absolutely delighted to be a part of the festival this year! With jousting, kitchens, armoury, birds of prey and horses, we’ll really be bringing Mary’s world to life for visitors. A date for the diary of any fan of Mary and the time she lived.

October sees the return of Zombies at DunCarron, If you survived last year, you may not survive this year! We are also having a Halloween fun event at our HQ. And as the year draws to a close, we are excited to once again be a part of the Callander Winter Fest, and will be hosting our own Yule event at DunCarron.

So, it’s certainly shaping up to be another fantastic year for events. These are only the confirmed events and there may be more to come! Events may be subject to change, so please check the EVENTS info on our webpage, like our Facebook accounts and follow us on Twitter for updates.

We really hope to see you at one of our events, as we share and celebrate Scotland’s fantastic, rich history, culture and music!
