Calling all Future Guardians of Scotland!

The Edinburgh Dungeon needs you! As we open our doors to welcome you putrid peasant’s back we find ourselves in need of something a wee bit extra! We’re searching for the ultimate Scot who can lead our country towards covid freedom - a modern day Braveheart if you will!

It's no secret that our beloved William Wallace was taken from us, back in 1305 so now we need to find a new Saviour of Scotland, could it be you?

  • Do you LOVE Scotland with all your heart (no matter how wee that black heart may be)?
  • Do you have what it takes to call yourself the ultimate Scot?
  • If Scotland’s in your heart, then we want to hear from you!

So inspired by our mission to find the next Scottish guardian, our friends (and believe us when we say we don't have many of those) at Apex Hotels and Hard Rock Edinburgh have helped to create a reward that no true Scot could resist, a weekend in our glorious capital for two peasants on the 5th and 6th of June. Your reward will include an overnight stay at the stunning 4-star Apex Grassmarket Hotel Edinburgh with breakfast included along with an evening meal at the ultra-trendy Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh and not forgetting tickets to the Dungeons themselves!

So, ladies and gentlemen of this great country go toot on those bagpipes, stack that Iron Bru nice and high, dig into that plate of Haggis and make sure you take a picture to share with us as you’re all welcome to get involved in the fun and we want to see as many of your ugly mugs as possible!

To enter simply fill in the form below and let us know why you think you could be the next guardian of Scotland, don’t forget to include a photo which shows your love of our beautiful country and its traditions as we want to see your ugly mugs in all of their Scottish glory!

We'll choose two potential guardians and put their Scottish inspired photo to the public vote on the Olde book of Face from 10/05/21 to 16/05/21 with the guardian with the most votes being crowned the ultimate Scot and being invited to our glorious city on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of June. We'll also be giving away two pairs of Dungeon tickets to two entrants which will be selected at random (no votes required) so get them entries in!

So, get off your bahookie and tell us why you love Scotland!

Let the battle commence!
