The Black Watch Castle and Museum is Perth’s must visit destination this summer.

The visitor attraction has a variety of engaging activities for all ages, from the guided tour unlimited day pass, summer family pass, poppy crafts and much more.

Emma Halford-Forbes, museum manager, said: “We are pleased to offer our visitors the option of a guided tour unlimited day pass to the Museum. The best way to immerse yourself in the history of The Black Watch Regiment is to take one of our guided tours.

“This day pass includes exclusive access to Last of The Tide, a historic and poignant portrait collection of 12 D-Day veterans, currently on loan to us from the Royal Collection.”

The visitor attraction also has lots to keep the children entertained over the summer months with a family summer pass, in gallery handling afternoon, Museum trails and poppy crafts. Shonagh Lowerson-Head, learning and audience officer, said: “We hope families are as excited as we are about our summer family pass! This summer special offer means families who buy our Museum flexible family ticket can use it up until September 25.”

This summer, The Black Watch Castle and Museum became the first venue in mainland Scotland to host the emotive Poppies: Weeping Window sculpture by Paul Cummins, artist and Tom Piper, designer. Visitors can view this commemorative artwork until the end of September. The venue has a number of events linked to the installation that will engage visitors of all ages, including Message to a Soldier and the Scottish Hydro singers performing a selection of World War One songs.
