Robert's Tips

Robert Ballantyne - Battle re-enactor

I'm Robert, I am a living history presenter and battle re-enactor, I teach history to tourists and school children whilst in period costume. I make all of my own costumes, trying to respect the techniques and materials as close as possible to the originals. Scotland is a beautiful country with stunning mountains, lochs and glens, and I try and escape to the great outdoors every opportunity I have. I am a very proud Scot and I feel lucky that I live Scotland’s history and heritage every day, through my work, my study and my craft.
