To mark the day that the Massacre of Glencoe took place, this innovative video celebrating one of Sir Walter Scott’s lesser-known works has been created by Edinburgh-based company Double Take Projections.
Scott’s ‘On the Massacre of Glencoe’ poem commemorates one of the darkest incidents in Scottish history – the Massacre of Glencoe which saw more than 70 Highlanders killed for alleged treason.
Double Take Projections has created the video showing the words of Sir Walter Scott’s poem, being beamed, on location, onto the Glencoe scenery.
Our current exhibition ‘Game of Crowns: the 1715 Jacobite Rising’ tells the story of this bloody period in Scotland’s history, and the handwritten document ordering this massacre is currently on display. This exhibition is open until Sunday 10 May 2015.
