Taught by David McNicoll

Although I now live in New York I come from the Scottish Highlands; where I honed my knowledge and enjoyment of whisky. I now run a travel company that specialises in tour packages to Scotland - including whisky tours. More info on that at www.vacationscotland.biz

In 1603, one of the momentous events in history occurred when the Scottish King, James VI inherited the throne of England following the death of his cousin Elizabeth. He combined his two nations and called them Great Britain – and all subsequent kings and queens of Britain are his descendants to the present day. The telling of British royal history tends to focus on the English line, and their influence on England. Well here is your chance to hear the story of Scotland’s monarchs and their colourful and often bloody role in shaping Scotland and Britain.
