A celebration of the buildings built mostly in the Highlands of Scotland to cater for the needs and aspirations of the sporting set. This ranges from picturesque rustic cottages such as Connachon Lodgein Highland Perthshire to veritable palaces such as Kinloch Castle, Rum and of course Balmoral in Aberdeenshire. These sporting estates are still an important part of the Highland economy. 

All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
