Jacobite Encampment

Step back to a time when the Jacobites roamed the highlands of Scotland during the late 17th and early 18th Centuries. 
Their journey began in support of Kings James II and ended with Bonnie Prince Charlie at the Battle of Culloden.  
Visit their encampment and see how they lived, dressed and went to war during the times of the 5 Jacobite risings. 



Rangers of Govannas

The Rangers of Govannas are a passionate and enthusiastic community in the world of medieval martial arts. 
They focus on traditional medieval era weapon fighting, as well as archery, thrown weapons, and various crafting workshop experiences.

Visit their "living village" and learn about medieval weaponry and armor and see a real-life medieval encampment.
The Rangers of Govannas will also be presenting their famous Ranger Rumble where you can take on some of their Rangers in medieval combat.
