News and Events
Each year a number of events are held at the Scottish National War Memorial. Many of these are organised in co-operation with Veterans' Associations. The Memorial is small, but there are usually some seats available to members of the public and if you would like to enquire about the availability of these seats, or if you would like to discuss or arrange a special tribute, please contact the Secretary to the Memorial. Find out more about our annual events here.
Remember that you are most welcome to visit the Memorial at any time during normal castle opening hours.
Summer 2014 saw the publication of Professor Duncan Macmillan's book "Scotland's Shrine - The Scottish National War Memorial".
The book records the history of the Memorial from concept, to completion in 1927. Sir Hew Strachan, one of Britain's leading authorities on World War One, said of this book: "It is a magnificent book: wonderful photographs and matched by serious scholarship. In a flood of books for the centenary that don't matter, at last one that does."
The book can be bought through all good retailers, Historic Scotland shops and direct from the publisher Lund Humphries.
