Kids Go Free
Parents with put-upon purses will welcome Historic Scotland’s October initiative: under-16s are welcome - gratis - to their sites across Scotland, if accompanied by a paying adult. Edinburgh Castle also hosts Ghostfest, noon-4pm all month, where wizards and puppets mix with tales of owls, ravens and the Grim Reaper. In addition, many properties will be open later than usual as part of the Autumn Gold promotion.
Historic Scotland attractions, throughout October. For more information visit www.historic-scotland.gov.uk.
