Cruise of the Betsey

Coming up in September … the sailboat Leader will follow part of the journey taken by Hugh Miller on The Betsey in 1844. This is a modestly funded project, but has created quite a dynamic over the past year, because so many creative people and organisations have pledged their support – the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, Friends of Hugh Miller and the Scottish Geodiversity Forum are all involved, with many others. The journey will take place from 6th -12th September 2014, and has associated community events in Cromarty and on Eigg. We have also produced linked educational resources for primary and sceondary pupils which will be piloted in September & October.
