It’s coming to the end of the year and we wanted to take this opportunity to say a little ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has helped support our blog.
Working at Culloden we are lucky enough to meet people from across the world who come to discover more about Scottish history, their ancestors and their heritage. However, we are aware that there are many people who can’t make the journey to Culloden and even those who do might only a have a brief time here to try and take in everything the site has to offer. So, with that in mind we decided to start this blog as a way of sharing the stories of Culloden and the NTS to people across the world and we can’t believe how well it has been received!
Neither of us are writers so we were weren’t sure how well the blog would go down. Nor are we historians or experts of any kind, the closest we can offer is a degree in Geology? and the experience of working with the NTS for quite a few years between us. (We won’t tell you how long because we want to believe we are still young) But, working at Culloden we are fortunate to have the chance to discover and learn all about the Jacobite history and since we enjoy it we thought other people might to.
Luckily you were quick to respond and overall it has been very positive. So, thank you for all your comments, your corrections and your enthusiasm which has kept us motivated to write these posts even when we’re running out of time and trying to do our ‘normal’ jobs at the same time.
We both love working at Culloden and are passionate about the work that the National Trust for Scotland does in helping to conserve and protect amazing sites across Scotland. Things can sometimes get pretty busy here and occasionally a little stressful but we wouldn’t change it. We are lucky to get something different every day of the year, meeting new people and hearing new stories.
We hope we have brought a little bit of Culloden into the homes of those who cannot visit us themselves and shared a few extra secrets for those who come and see us year after year. We will endeavour to keep writing and hope you will all keep reading and inspiring us to find new stories and fun facts to share with you.
So, thank you for supporting us and we hope you all have a great time over the holidays and will join us again next year to continue our crazy adventure!
We hope you all have a fantastic time over the holidays and a wonderful New Year!
