Scotland's Festival of History
16th and 17th AUGUST 2014
Scotland’s Festival of History, one of the UK’s leading multi-period festivals, has a new home at Chatelherault, near Hamilton. The 2014 festival will be held in the Grand Avenue of Chatelherault, the magnificent 18th century hunting lodge of the Duke of Hamilton, who is also Duc de Chatelherault in France.
This means a historic and very scenic home with visitors also having all the facilities that this 5* VisitScotland attraction offers - from the house and its various facilities to the magnificent park.
There is a railway station, and bus stop, right at the park entry. Chatelherault is just two miles off the M74 at Hamilton in South Lanarkshire.
