About Hunting, Shooting and Fishing: The Architecture of Highland Holidays
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
A celebration of the buildings built mostly in the Highlands of Scotland to cater for the needs and aspirations of the sporting set. This ranges from picturesque rustic cottages such as Connachon Lodgein Highland Perthshire to veritable palaces such as Kinloch Castle, Rum and of course Balmoral in Aberdeenshire. These sporting estates are still an important part of the Highland economy. Simon Green is an architectural historian with Historic Environment Scotland. He has published a book on Dumfries House, Ayrshire and is the President of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland.
