If you have taken the children to see the film ‘Brave’ and are wondering what to do to entertain them now that the summer holidays are drawing to a close, why not take them to three beautiful Historic Scotland attractions in Lewis which helped to inspire the film?

Historic Scotland has compiled a special quiz celebrating the release of Disney Pixar’s film Brave so you and the children can find out fascinating and unusual facts about Calanais Standing Stones, the Blackhouse, Arnol and Dun Carloway, one of the best preserved broch towers in Scotland.

The quiz will be available from The Blackhouse, Arnol and Calanais from Friday 3rd August to coincide with the opening of the film in Scotland.

Liz Grant, Historic Scotland’s Commercial Business Manager said: “If you’ve seen ‘Brave, bring the children and explore one of the real sites in Scotland which inspired the film.

“Come along on a fun, fact-filled mission around the Blackhouse, Arnol, the magnificent Calanais Standing Stones and Dun Carloway, and take part in our quiz inspired by the themes in Brave.

“Look for an old pair of boots in the Blackhouse, find out what people have once believed the stones at Calanais symbolised and discover who climbed the broch to smoke out a party of cattle rustlers.

The quiz, also available in Gaelic, can also be downloaded from Historic Scotland website
