This summer we are extending our opening days so visitors can tour this 16th-century castle seven days a week. In order to do this and ensure sure each visitor experience continues to be exceptional, we need to increase our team of amazing volunteer room stewards and guides who generously donate their time to the castle.
Our volunteers, the ‘Friends of Thirlestane’, are an invaluable and extremely enthusiastic resource. Without them, the charitable trust that operates the castle would not be able to open the doors and allow visitors to explore the fascinating building and its unique collections.
Thirlestane Castle Trust is appealing to anyone who may have some spare time, even if it is just a half day every so often, to consider joining the friendly team. The Trust are also looking for people to help in the shop and to meet and greet people so it doesn’t matter if history is not a passion, as the castle is looking for people who will help to give visitors a great experience.
