30th November 2016 – Following the expansion of our partnership to include the University of the Highlands and Islands, the Centre held a relaunch event at the University of Highlands and Island’s Centre for History, Burghfield House, Dornoch, on the evening of Wednesday 30 November. The event began with a drinks reception at 6pm, which was followed by a paper given by Micky Gibbard, a graduate student of cartography at the University of Dundee (Centre for Scotland’s land Futures). Micky’s talk looked at ‘Improvement and Landscape: Landownership in Eighteenth Century Scotland’, and gave attendees a fascinating glimpse into the changing nature of the Scottish landscape.
