Talk: Are we nearly there yet? By Bruce Keith

By Events

Thursday 30th November 2023

2pm – 3pm

Join us for a talk on the story of Scottish milestones!

Author Bruce Keith will present his book “Are we nearly there yet?”, it’s a story of Scottish milestones- not just distance markers, but early means of measurement, maps and the travellers of the 18th and 19th century whose journals laid the foundation of the Scottish tourist industry.

Bruce will also celebrate the “Top 50 Scots” – the sportsmen and women who have gone the extra mile to set new world records in terms of speed and endurance – so something for everyone!

To book your place please click on the “book now” tab at the side of the screen or click on “book online” in our top navigation bar. Here you can select the “Are we nearly there yet?” talk.
