Many of us have spent a lot of time reading and knowing the history of the clans in Scotland and the uprising in 1745. I’ve been to Culloden and it’s sobering. Read this awesome article from the Scotsman, where they detail some of the history and talk about the clans being welcomed back into the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle for the first time since the uprising. Awesome.
Just talked to Jim Laughton, and super excited that we have all our information updated for the 2017 event!
