Age of War

The Age of War explores the impact of conflict upon the Scottish landscape. From Napoleonic signal stations to a replica of an Atlantic Wall for top-secret research and training. Explore anti-tank defences along the East Lothian coastline, or read about a military training camp that hosted thousands of Germans during the First World War. Find out about shipwrecks, peace camps and memorials across Scotland, and the stories of these sites created during times of War.

Stobs Camp, Hawick

During the First World War the military training camp at Stobs hosted thousands of Germans, both internees and prisoners of war. Despite many years having passed since the camp’s closure, some of the buildings still stand and traces remain of the rest.

Tyninghame and Hedderwick beach defences - East Lothian

All along the East Lothian coastline are remains that bespeak of a dark period in Britain’s history: when the threat of an invasion led to a huge effort at prevention by ordinary men and women.
