Iron Age interpreters will share the secrets of two ancient crafts – tin casting and whistle making. Learn how to smelt tin and transform it into a decorative pendant, then find out how to make a wooden whistle from scratch. These activities are hands-on and will give you a real sense of what life may have been like 2,500 years ago in prehistoric Scotland.

Our Rangers will also be leading a guided walk where you can learn more about the crannogs that were on Linlithgow loch and how they were built. 

Some activities may not be suitable for children under 8.
