Shire of Harpelestane
The Shire of Harpelestane is an SCA group within the Kingdom of Drachenwald, and covers the entirety of Scotland. It was formed by members of the Medieval Society of the University of Edinburgh in 1993 and grew from covering only Edinburgh to the size it is today.
It originally shared the lands of Scotland with the Shire of Egail which was based at the USAF base at Edzell on the east coast. 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 are outliers in the Borders and as far north as Aberdeen. The main annual event run by the shire is Warbands at Edzell Castle.
