Alan Breck's Regiment bring Jacobite reenactment to Gladstone's Land

It is 1746 and the Jacobite Rising rumbles on, but troops loyal to King George have recaptured Edinburgh. Meet soldiers of the Edinburgh City Guard as they digest the latest news, and support the army's plans to march out against Bonnie Prince Charlie's army.

Reenactors will be in costume and character throughout the museum. No additional fee!

This event is connected to Jacobite Occupation on June 11th to tell both sides of the story, but does not require that you've atteneded the previous event.
