The Vikings are coming to Rothesay!

Rothesay Castle is set to be invaded by Vikings on Saturday, September 28. (Much more notice than we got in the 13th century...)

A horde of rampaging Vikings is set to storm Rothesay Castle as a band of brave Scots tries to defend the island’s rich heritage.

A news headline from the 13th century, right? Well, yes, but it’ll also be happening all over again next month at a day-long event being planned by the Friends of Rothesay Castle and Historic Scotland.

While it’s still very much in the early stages, the organisers are hoping that the day-long event, ‘By Land and Sea’, will create quite a spectacle in the town during the course of Saturday, September 28.
