  • Professor Christopher Whatley (University of Dundee)

Come along to the Apex Hotel, Dundee on Tuesday 24 April 2018 to hear more about  ‘Who were the Jacobites and what did they want for Scotland?'.  Chaired by Mike Russell MSP, Scottish Government Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe and Member of the Scottish Parliament for Argyll and Bute.
