A month of events at Stirling Castle to mark the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden and the subsequent coronation of the infant King James V will culminate in a weekend of commemoration on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September.
After Flodden – Commemoration and Coronation will transport visitors back to the sixteenth century, giving them a glimpse into royal life in the period, as costumed interpreters help to bring to life the events of 1513, its aftermath and its impact on castle life.
