“The Book of the Club of True Highlanders and the Littlejohn Album - From Inverlochy to Invercharron : wherein lies the truth about shinty?”
The Book of the Club of True Highlanders (1881) and the Littlejohn Album (1905) are two of shinty’s most important historical documents, and two of the least well known. Few shinty followers will know of, never mind have seen, either, although University students will be familiar with the Littlejohn Vase which accompanies the Album of the same name. In an illustrated talk, highlighting some remarkable images taken from the two sources, Hugh Dan Maclennan will discuss their relevance to the historical perceptions of shinty.
