The Friends of Hugh Miller


Added on 09 June 2021


Black Isle storyteller Lizzie McDougall of Highland Story Quilts invites you to watch a 10-minute story-telling video she has made on YouTube. She has chosen the perennial children's favourite, Capt Reid and the Mermaid from Scenes and Legends of the North of Scotland, and filmed it at the Birthplace Cottage.

She found it "an honour and inspiration" to sit by the fireside in the kitchen. She is supported on the clarsach by Siannie Moodie.

She adds: "My feeling is that even though Lockdown restrictions are lifting there will be many people who for many reasons are not going to be going out much so I have made these videos for people to watch at home . My hope is that the videos encourage a feeling of connection to some of the special places here in the Highlands."

Videos are also shown of Abertarff House in Inverness (NTS) and Foulis Castle., and she thanks  the National Trust for Scotland,Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland,  and The Munro Family at Foulis Castle
