In this lunchtime talk, Ishbel McFarlane, theatre artist and Scots language advocate, will explore Scots language in relation to pieces in the National Galleries of Scotland. She will look at the cultural importance of Scots language – also called Doric, Glaswegian, Scots dialect, Scots slang, Lallans, and many other names – and how that linguistic culture interacts with visual culture: Part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2019.

We provide a sensory map of the building to help visitors identify areas with changes in light, smells and noise. It locates seating areas and less crowded, quieter spaces. Printed copies are available from the front desk at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
Located in the city centre on Queen Street, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is easy to access.
