James Hunter, retired professor of History at the University of Highlands and Islands, is to give a talk at Elgin Library next month.
Author of 11 books about the Highlands and Islands, James will talk on Tuesday 10 December at 7pm about a fascinating period of Scottish history, when Scotland’s 1846 potato crop was wiped out, and his latest publication, Insurrection. Tickets are £5 and can be purchased online (https://secure.moray.gov.uk/eshop/home.php) or via Elgin Library.
Yeadons will be selling copies of the book on the evening.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
