The Rock of Ages

About The Rock of Ages

Dumbarton Castle falls victim to the History Bug. And it’s all thanks to The Rock of Ages where we will be celebrating 2,000 years of west coast history.

Come along and watch our fearless warriors in thrilling battles and learn more about cooking, traditions, armour and weaponry through the ages.

To mark the centenary of WWI visit our trenches and find out what life was like for brave soldiers on the frontline.
