Add this to Calendar

To conclude our centenary programme The Black Watch Castle and Museum will be hosting a There But Not There silhouette installation from 11th August until 11th November 2018. This project will be linked to the There But Not There national initiative to educate all generations about the ultimate sacrifice made during the First World War.

Our display will feature a 6ft outdoor Tommy sculpture with 13 silhouettes placed throughout the venue creating a remembrance trail for visitors. Each silhouette is our way of commemorating a small number of the many Black Watch soldiers who displayed courage and bravery, making the ultimate sacrifice. The experience includes an exhibition which shares artefacts that have been kept for years by soldiers’ families as a way of remembering the fathers, sons, brothers, cousins and uncles who did not return from the conflict.
