History Happy Hour: 66 and 1600

The man who built the White House; a hero of the Napoleonic Wars; the romantic Highlander invented by Sir Walter Scott; a murderer who inspired Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde; a poem by Andrew Carnegie; a decadent society hostess….. 66 Queen Street, Edinburgh, Scotland has held the stories of extraordinary people and events since the late 18th century to the present day, among them connections to a burgeoning United States of America.

Charlie Whitfield, Global Brand Ambassador Programme Manager at The Macallan at Edrington will be joining us to help kick off the program. Author John D. O. Fulton joins us to share more about the fascinating stories from inside 66 Queen Street. Learn more about Fulton's book here.

This program is being hosted in partnership with National Trust of Scotland and Scotland Street Press.
