We were commissioned by the National Trust for Scotland to create an interactive book to help  children explore and understand what happened at the Battle of Culloden.

The book was written by award-winning author Vee Walker and has charming illustrations by Duncan of Jordanstone graduate Zoë Swann.

Older children and confident readers can act out the story with a scripted version, whereas younger children can follow the illustrated picture book as they stop off and explore various points on the battlefield.

The story follows the MacIntosh family as they set off to #FindAleckie in the aftermath of the battle.
