Design your own castle!

Design and build your own cardboard medieval castle with this free teaching resource from Historic Environment Scotland.

Castles were introduced to Scotland about 900 years ago. They were used as places of power and protection where the lord and lady, their household and tenants could defend themselves from enemy attack.

Students can use this worksheet to learn about castles and then design their own using the cut-out template.
