Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Pitlochry Perthshire Scotland PH16 5DR
Archaeologist, historian, conservationist, author and broadcaster, Neil Oliver is best known as presenter of the BBC documentary series, Coast. This event is his personal account of what makes these islands so special, told through places which have borne witness to the unfolding of our history. Cradling astonishing beauty, the human story here is a million years old, but the tolerant, easy-going peace we’ve enjoyed has been hard won. We’ve made and known the best and worst of times. We have been hero and villain and all else in between.
Beginning with humankind’s earliest ancestors, he takes us via Romans and Vikings, the flowering of religion, civil war, industrial revolution and two world wars. From windswept headlands to battlefields – each is a place where the spirit of the past seems to linger. “I have chosen what I consider to be the most characteristic features of the face I have grown up to know and love… in this present climate of public fear, disagreement and uncertainty about the future, I think it is timely to look again at the past, the story of this place from its earliest times.” £14.50 Tel: 01796 484600 Dir: 01796 484637

Literary Lunch – Christopher Fleet: Scotland: Defending The Nation
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Pitlochry Perthshire Scotland PH16 5DR
Scotland has had an important military history over the last five centuries. 16th century conflict with England, Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century, two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity. Christopher Fleet, Senior Map Curator in the National Library of Scotland will explore this rich legacy through rare maps, some reproduced in book form for the first time. These maps tell particular stories about both attacking and defending the country: fortifications, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, military roads, mines, enemy maps, unrealised proposals and projected schemes. £24.50 includes a two course lunch and coffee or tea.

Peter Cairns: SCOTLAND: A Rewilding Journey

Perthshire United Kingdom + Google Map

Sunday 17 February 6.00pm – 7.00pm
Peter Cairns: SCOTLAND: A Rewilding Journey
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Pitlochry Perthshire Scotland PH16 5DR
Not so long ago vibrant, wild forest stretched across much of Scotland. Beavers and cranes were at home in extensive wetlands. Salmon and trout filled the rivers. Lynx, wolf and wild boar roamed wooded glades. Today, it’s easy to be seduced by the raw beauty of the Scottish landscape, but it is sadly an ecological shadow of its former self. It doesn’t have to be this way. Join conservation photographer Peter Cairns, who leads the call for a new vision of a wilder Scotland, where forests abundant with life are regenerating, rivers lined with alder and willow run freely, damaged peatlands are revitalised and oceans support the great whales: a place where nature works as it should, wildlife flourishes and crucially, where people prosper. £8.50 Tel: 01796 484600 Dir: 01796 484637
