Arran Paul Johnston

Battlefield Historian and Historical Consultant

Coiture de Vigne


Battlefields are my passion, and few aspects of my work provide as much pleasure as sharing my fascination with them to interested visitors on the very ground were these events occured.


I have provided tours for history groups, school parties, "Outlander" fans, and the general public.


Private tours can be booked by group co-ordinators, whilst public tours occur on adverised dates.



The main sites which I provide walking tours for are:


- The Battle of Prestonpans, 21st September 1745


- The Battle of Pinkie Cleugh, 10th September 1547


- The Battle of Dunbar, 3rd September 1650  (NEW FOR 2018)


- The Battle of Falkirk, 17th January 1746


- Defending Edinburgh: the Old Town Walls



In addition, I am able to consider additional sites on request (although I will advise honestly if the sites or subjects suggested are not ones I am suitably familiar with).


I can also be booked by the managers of historic sites, local authorities etc, to provided tour services for their visitors or as part of their programming. 



By special request tours in high-quality PERIOD CLOTHING can also be arranged.


Prices on request.
