Travelogue heads to Scottish Highlands on Nov. 12

By on November 9, 2016

The Lititz Rotary Club’s third travelogue of the season will visit the Scottish Highlands. There will be two showings on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., with musical entertainment 30 minutes prior to each show. Travelogues are presented in the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St.

See the Highlands of Scotland with photographer Tom Sterling, who takes a fresh look at an old and revered land. A first-time visitor to Scotland tends to see only the quaint villages, castles (in various stages of disrepair), distilleries, mountain scenery, souvenirs and sheep — lots of sheep. Of course, those familiar with the game that originated in Scotland, golf, may also attempt to visit or play on one their famous courses. But Sterling’s story goes far beyond those adventures — a pipe band contest, a sheep dog trial, a weaver of tartans, the Culloden Battlefield, a hunting/fishing estate, and the remains of the 73-mile-long wall that the Roman Emperor Hadrian had built to exclude these “barbarians,” from this empire.
