Shire of Harpelestane
It originally shared the lands of Scotland with the Shire of Egail which was based at the USAF base at Edzell, Angus. When Egail became defunct due to the closure of the base, Harpelestane absorbed its lands.
Most members of the shire live in the Edinburgh and Fife areas, although there is also a small contigent in the Glasgow area and as far north as Aberdeen.
Traditionally, the most regularily practised activity is historical dancing. However in recent years, more eclectic activities such as heavy combat, renaissance fencing or feasts have broadened the tapestry.
The main annual event run by the shire was previously Warbands at Edzell Castle. This event has now been discontinued. Harpelestane's newest large annual event is Battle of the Heart, Nineacres Memorial Campsite, near the Crook of Devon in Fife.
