Museum Mascot Hackles Dies

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Hackle on 8th January 2012. He died peacefully with his family.

Hackle was the golden Labrador of Jim Sandilands, Museum Attendant. Hackle had worked alongside Jim at The Black Watch Museum since he was a puppy. He will be sorely missed by all the staff and visitors at the Castle.

A memorial fund has been established in Hackle’s name. This will go towards a memorial of some type in the grounds.
