Lecture: The Highland Idyll: Scotland’s sporting paradise and architecture of the Romantic North

Wednesday 7 February — Turn up or book and save
6.30pm to 8pm. A lecture to be given by Mary Miers. Fourth in our Private Realms 3 lecture series organised by Steven Brindle.

Some of the most remarkable and least-known Victorian country houses were those built for holidays in the Scottish Highlands. Mary Miers, Fine Arts and Books Editor of Country Life and author of the recently published Highland Retreats (2017), discusses the social and historical context of houses such as Ardverikie, Arisaig, Ardtornish, Ardkinglas and Kinloch Castle and shows how the architecture and patrons of the Highland shooting lodge have often been misrepresented. At the Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1 at 6.30pm. Doors open at 6pm and close at 6.25pm. Wine will be available before the lectures (not included in ticket prices). The venue is conveniently placed for Holborn and Russell Square tube stations and numerous bus services. Tickets £11 on the door, if available, or cheaper if you book 6 or more.
