Pre-purchase of tickets is not necessary, the celebration is included in the cost of admission.
The castle’s original inhabitants, the Dunsmuirs, had deep Scottish roots and so we celebrate this day in their honor as well as the great poet himself, ‘Robbie Burns’. Starting at 11am, the Celtic rock band Cookeilidh will start their performance in the musician’s alcove between first and second floors. Just before 12pm, the band will stop and Cole Griffiths will begin the Piping in of the Haggis followed by the traditional address and serving of the Haggis to all who would like a taste of this holiest of dishes. The band will play again and the celebrations will continue until around 1pm.
The event will take place between the first and second floor and in the dining room but please be aware that there are some stairs to get into the building (No elevator).
