Cuthbert of Castlehill: from the Battle of Culloden to the French Revolution

I’m very pleased to have a feature article in today’s Press & Journal newspaper, about my research into Cuthbert of Castlehill.

I have been researching Cuthbert, or Colbert, for some time, and, as you can tell from the headline alone, he led a fascinating life. As the article explains, I have been invited to present some of my research at a symposium in France in December – of course, due to coronavirus restrictions, I will be taking part online.

***UPDATED TO ADD: you can now read the article online at this link: https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/nostalgia/2669578/vive-la-revoultion-the-highlander-who-played-a-key-role-in-the-french-uprising/ – the Press & Journal allow a couple of pages to be read for free, then of course content is free to subscribers only. ****

My research into Cuthbert of Castlehill is being supported by the French Institute in Edinburgh, the Saltire Society, and the Highland Archive Centre. I would also like to thank the librarians in Inverness Library for their assistance, particularly during this difficult time of lockdowns and restricted library access.

I will be posting again about Cuthbert of Castlehill shortly: if you are interested in finding out more you can subscribe to this website and receive emails every time I update this blog – simply enter your email address at the bottom of this page, and follow the instructions on the email you will receive.
