About The Rock of Ages
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Join us in the shadow of the rock to recreate the rich history of Scotland’s west coast, from the Roman Age through to the Second World War. This year the Vikings will play a starring role, celebrating Norse heritage in Scotland, and revealing how their influence continues today. Hear about the different stages of Viking activity, from raiding to conquest, and settlement to integration. You’ll come away asking yourself, ‘are we all Vikings?’.
If you are a Historic Scotland member, admission to this event is free of charge. You do not need to book a ticket, please just bring along your membership card to gain entry.
