It’s the year 1923. Mrs Reid, now a widow, lives a secluded life with her housekeeper Mrs Mackay. Her steward and friend, John Fairley, who is proposing to write a book about the history of Lauriston, joins them to reflect on the many interesting people connected with the house and estate. 

Edinburgh Living History are our multi award- winning team, who interpret the history of the castle in a variety of entertaining ways in Edwardian costume - bringing alive the history of the house. Each performance is carefully devised by Edinburgh Living History to be as historically accurate as possible and include a touch of drama and a soupcon of humour. You will walk through the Castle on a special tour watching the performance unfold.
