Museum Without Walls: Scotland’s Clearances Trail App brings alive one of the most notorious episodes in Scottish history – The Highland Clearances.
The aim of the App is to give virtual and actual visitors an interactive trip around one of the country’s most beautiful and historic areas, the Strath of Kildonan, in the northernmost tip of Scotland. The epic voyage made by some families cleared from the Strath of Kildonan is widely viewed by historians as one of the most demanding journeys endured by European emigrants to North America.
***The App is around 357MB in size. After installing the App, please be patient while it extracts the contents in your device memory card. It may take up to 10minutes on older/low end devices.***
This App has been launched by Timespan to mark the Kildonan Clearances Bicentenary in 2013. It has been developed by Mujtaba Mehdi (email firstname.lastname@example.org) in part requirement for the Degree of MSc in Advanced Computer Science under the supervision of Dr. Alan Miller at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
