Hugh Miller & The Cruise of the Betsey (6th -12th September)
RSGS and the Friends of Hugh Miller have chartered an old sailing boat to re-enact the voyage take by Hugh Miller in 1844, on the sailing boat The Betsey. We will be departing from the North Pier in Oban this Saturday afternoon, and plan to visit Mull, Eigg and Rum. Our floating manse, scientific laboratory and art studio is the wonderful Brixham trawler Leader, built in 1892. We hope to be able to communicate via Twitter, Facebook and on our Betsey website during the journey. We also have linked events on Eigg during that week, plus a follow-up Hugh Miller Festival in Cromarty (23rd -25th September).
Full details are on the Betsey website http://cruiseofthebetsey.wordpress.com
Come and find us at the North Pier in Oban if you are anywhere nearby around lunchtime on Saturday 6th September.
