The Scots Brigade is part of the Sealed Knot Society. Comprised of four separate Regiments, we re-enact battles from the English Civil War of 1642 - 1651, travelling all over the country to put on displays at weekends for public enjoyment, education and to raise money for charity.  

We pride ourselves on high standards of authenticity and strive for excellence in all that we do.  However we also fundamentally believe that re-enactment should be fun - both on and off the battlefield. We work hard and we party hard!

Welcome friends


Clad in Scots hodden grey, Colonel Hugh Fraser's Regiment of Dragoones portray the Scots lowland Covenanters.  
Will you help support their ranks?


The only Scots unit to portray Highlanders, Colonel William Gordon's Regiment of Foote is quickly identifiable by the plaid cloth and targe.  Find out more!


Representing the Irish contingent, Laghtnans are a small but deadly Regiment.  Could they be the ones to whom you lend your support?


With a rich history of fighting alongside the Scots, Manus O'Cahans is another Irish regiment.  Discover if this might be the Regiment for you!

Come and see us in action!

About the Sealed Knot

The Sealed Knot is Europe’s largest and best known re-enactment Society.  Celebrating it's 50th anniversary in 2018, it now has several thousand members throughout the UK.   The Sealed Knot is organised into two opposing 17th Century armies then further split into Regiments. 

The society's aim is to increase the knowledge and awareness of the general public regarding the period of history commonly known as the “English Civil War” (1638 - 1651).  It achieves this through publicly re-enacting battles, sieges and skirmishes and staging 'Living History' depicting life in the seventeenth century.  The Sealed Knot is a registered charity and through these 'performances', is able to raise money for a variety of notable causes both locally and nationally.
