The Finlaggan Trust welcomes participation in an online Virtual Tour of Finlaggan, the former Seat of the Lords of the Isles, which will take you back to Islay during the height of the Lordship’s power in the fifteenth century. The tour will be given by Dr. David Caldwell, President of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, and lead archaeologist of the site during the excavations in the 1980s–90s.
The tour will feature a digital reconstruction of the site, drone footage of Finlaggan and related locations around Islay, and photogrammetrical reconstructions of key artefacts, see below, discovered during the past excavations. Taking place on June 4 at 2pm with a repeat showing at 7.30pm, please check www.facebook.com/OpenVirtualWorlds and our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds for information on accessing the tour and frequent updates on the project.
