Clans, castle strongholds and ancient ancestral seats start here.

Become a Border Reiver at Caerlaverock Castle. Attack the Maxwell Clan in their triangular fortress and put their intricately carved defences to the test. Then call in on the world-class Clan Armstrong Centre, lovingly restored at the imposing Gilnockie Tower.

Spend time with Scouse storyteller Steve - whose life was transformed after his ancestral voyage to Sorbie Tower. And join him on his quest to return the site to former glory.

Finally - rejoice in song as Wullie Beattie performs the Ballad of Johnnie Armstrong.

You’ll be roaming the South of Scotland the second you tap play. Listen and find yourself at Scotland’s first lines of defence - and visit
