Event description
Join us for our annual joint lecture with Scotland's Garden and Landscape Heritage

About this event

Landscape historian Christopher Dingwall will describe the intensive programme of road building which took place in the Southern Highlands of Scotland between the completion of Wade’s military roads in the 1720s and the arrival of the railways in the 1830s.  With the help of previously unpublished archival material, Christopher will illustrate the developments which occurred at the four great Highland landscapes associated with Inveraray Castle, Taymouth Castle, Blair Castle and Dunkeld House, involving a partnership between the landowners, the Government, and a number of Scotland’s most celebrated architects in the building of bridges and creation of new settlements.  Some consideration will be given to the social and economic impacts of these developments.  Christopher will refer to a chapter he contributed to Old Ways New Roads : Travels in Scotland 1720-1832 (Birlinn 2021). This is a joint lecture with Scotland’s Garden and Landscape Heritage.
