The Famous Scots project is an attempt to connect the current generation of Scot’s with their rich and unique world heritage. The Scots influence abroad is far greater than the size of the home nation would suggest. This should be a constant source of national pride. A series of photographic essays with extended informative captions, for exhibition and publication as an educational resource on the lives of our most famous historical figures, will be produced to bring the successful story of the Scottish ‘Diaspora’ back home to the Scottish people.
‘You come from a race of men the very wind of whose name has swept to the ultimate seas’
