Our history has been told countless times, but women usually only get a walk-on part. 'Scotland: Her Story' aims to redress the balance, and offer a view of the nation's high points and darkest times from women's perspective.

Drawing on court records, diaries, chronicles, letters, newspapers, memoirs and interviews, Rosemary Goring has gathered the experiences of women and girls since the middle ages, be they nuns, servants, housewives, toddlers, doctors, thieves, schoolchildren, politicians, cooks, novelists and very many others. The result is an entirely original and often startling take on the past 1500 years. 


I greatly appreciated the superb organisation and was amazed at the level of enthusiasm for the Festival considering the relatively small size of the community.  It was well worth it for me to come up to Perthshire and I was only sorry I couldn‘t stay around for the main events the next day.
