About the event

Jennifer Shaw, Dunollie’s lead archive volunteer, presents a fascinating insight in to the recently discovered Dunollie rent book, dating to the mid 17th century. The Rent Book opens up a whole new insight into the economic relationship between the MacDougall Clan Chiefs and their tenants preceding the Jacobite era in Scotland, which we would not have been able to access, if not for its miraculous rediscovery and Jennifer’s skill and dedication put towards its transcription.

Following Jennifer’s presentation, there will be an opportunity for those interested to step into the 1745 House Museum’s reading room and see the Rent Book.
