There are many Scots who have achieved fame or success abroad but who remain largely unknown in Scotland. Many of their stories illustrate triumphs of bravery and spirit over adversity.
The goal of the Famous Scots Project is to celebrate the Scots Diaspora and help move the national historical perspective of many Scots beyond the sentiments of 'Flower of Scotland'. Our aim is to deliver a better appreciation of the rich heritage and amazing talents of our ancestors byutilising a largely untapped source of national pride.
A series of photographic expeditions will follow in the footsteps of chosen Famous Scots. Photography is the perfect medium for this project and it will appeal to all ages and backgrounds.
