Urquharts gather in Cromarty

The 2011 Clan Urquhart Gathering and Tour reached Cromarty yesterday. The day's activities began with a service in the old East Church and a piper-led march up the hill to the grounds of Cromarty House for the raising of the Urquhart flag. Back down the hill at the Courthouse, the Chief read a proclamation declaring 30 July to be 'Sir Thomas Urquhart Day' for all time.

In the evening an 'Art of Musick' concert marked the 400th anniversary of Sir Thomas Urquhart's birth in 17th century period atmosphere at the Stables, featuring tunes of the times and readings from his literary works.
