Re-Enactment Event at Luss

arrival-main

The wet weather at the end of March threw some doubt on the outlook for the Easter weekend. However on 2nd April the advance parties of re-enactors from different parts of the UK began to arrive in Luss, not at all daunted as they hold these events whatever the weather. Many had never been to Scotland before and were quite impressed as on Friday the sun began to shine on the hills and glens. Throughout the rest of Friday more and more came, from London, Kent, Sussex, Devon, Wales, Gloucester, Norfolk, Manchester, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Northumberland. Despite their warlike appearances, these people were respectable participants, being Museum curators, history teachers, and professional people, all experts in the roles they were re-enacting. By Saturday there were 130 assembled on the field. This included the 'living history groups' who demonstrated 17th century life, cooking methods, weapons making. Another group were making musical instruments and playing them.
