The National War Museum in Edinburgh is simply unmissable for those with an interest in Scottish soldiers through history. Within the magical setting of the city’s grand, foreboding castle, you’ll hear accounts of glorious victory and miserable defeat through the ages, told through military artefacts and personal collections. In 2014 the museum will host a programme of exhibitions and events to mark the centenary of the First World War, focusing on how this most gruesome of conflicts affected millions of Scots in service and at home. Also, look out for the excellent actors who bring the life of various soldiers from different wars to life, the superb area dedicated to the Highland soldier and his history, the weapons collection in the Tools of the Trade gallery and the A Grand Life for a Scotsman gallery which explores why so many Scots have be drawn to the military life over the years. An excellent reason to visit the mighty Edinburgh Castle.
