Interpreting the Black Isle and Beyond :The history and mystery of 21st century interpretive storytelling

Verity Walker


Most recently, she has project-managed the community engagement side of the Kirkmichael restoration for the Kirkmichael Trust and plans to build on this with a new project looking at the mediaeval period in the Highlands with a focus on the Chanonry of Ross. Her debut historical novel about WWI, ‘Major Tom’s War’ will be published next year. Verity was brought up in the Black Isle by her mother Penny Poole, a local teacher and keen amateur historian. As a young girl, her summers were spent visiting historic sites such as castles or ruined burial grounds. This love of the past stayed with her and influenced her professional life.

This talk will take the audience on an entertaining ‘tour’ of some of the most beautiful places in the Highlands — with a surprise (and a story or two) in store!

Cromarty History Society meets in the West Church Hall, Cromarty at 7.30pm on the the third Thursday of each month, September - April
