Duchess Kitty Exhibition
Blair Castle, Blair Atholl PH18 5TL
The Duchess affectionately known as Kitty, a petite beauty and talented musician. She visited Blair Castle in 1896 and stole the 8th Duke’s heart. Relatively unknown by the public today our new exhibition will explain what an important and influential lady she was. In 1924 she became the first Scottish women MP often arguing against the government she was never afraid to voice her opinions. A fervent campaigner for women and children both at home and abroad she visited war zones reporting back on conditions. Once her political career ended she returned to the Castle and her duties with her usual enthusiasm, pride and love. Tel: 01796 481207 Web: https://blair-castle.co.uk/
