- War and military service have touched the lives of countless Scots, leaving their mark on Scotland's history, image and reputation abroad. Here, in the magnificent setting of Edinburgh Castle, explore over 400 years of the Scottish military experience. The First World War affected millions of Scots, both at home and in service, and touched the lives of people of Scottish descent all over the world. Beginning with ‘Next of Kin’, our Centenary programme of exhibitions and events will share the Scottish memory of these world-changing events with national and international visitors.
