Lay siege to Stirling Castle, spot Nessie hiding at Urquhart Castle, have a feast with Mary Queen of Scots and escape Edinburgh Castle's dungeons!

This book introduces little explorers to Scotland's history through its most famous castles – each page is inspired by a real Scottish castle in the care of Historic Environment Scotland. Moving parts let them pull up a portcullis, lower a drawbridge, tunnel out of the dungeons, blow up a tower and set off an amazing firework display.

The bright and exciting illustrations are packed full of historical detail helping young children to learn as they play. An ideal gift for visitors to Scotland, this large board book is chunky but lightweight with sturdy moving parts that are just the right size for little hands.
