In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and our events have been postponed until further notice. If you would like to keep up to date about our events please sign up to our newsletter.

Come along and experience what life would have been like for Norse men and women who landed on Scottish shores around the end of the ninth century. How did they get here, what did they eat and what role did the sea play in their daily life?

Watch fearless Viking warriors in thrilling clashes. Wander through the camp to find out how they lived, what they ate, how they made their weapons and clothes. Have a go at striking a Viking coin, making some flour and try on a helmet or two.

Listen to a Viking scald tell a saga and find out why they did not wear horned helmets!
