Tales From The Castle – Allan The Storyteller.
Historic Environment Scotland look after Edinburgh Castle and every year, as part of the Doors Open Day, open the castle for free for the day on or around St. Andrew’s Day.Last year we went along and, being November, got numb fingers taking photos.
As I wandered around I bumped into Allan Burnett dressed in his 1854 red tunic and kilt just after he finished entertaining a crowd with tales of historical doings. I had a quick chat as I grabbed a few shots and I found out that he is a well known author, especially books for young people. He is published by Birlinn Press.
