The end of British Summer time and only 4 days until Halloween.

Join storyteller Lady Anne Kerr and discover the deadlier, dangerous side of Dalkeith. Travel back to the mid 1600’s – a time when witches were persecuted, tried and burned.

Today it seems incredible that a whole society should believe in witchcraft, but over 100 years more than 1000 were killed in Scotland and a generous quota in Dalkeith.

The tour begins at the Dukes’ Gates – the entrance to Dalkeith Country Park and will end in the Museum – with refreshments to calm your shattered nerves!


Tickets also available at Dalkeith Museum, 61 St Andrew Street.
