Computer Games, Jacobites and Herb Gardens!

We fund the Duncarron Medieval Village project in many ways, some of which are a bit unusual for a history-based charity. For example; the skills of our trained warriors, at Combat International, are not only in demand for live-action movie shoots, but they have also been contracted to bring computer game characters to life. The lastest ‘Dawn of War’ game, the imaginatively entitled ‘Dawn of War III’ is one such project. You can watch a ‘making of’ vid of this production by clicking HERE!

Another fundraising project we have recently been involved with is an advertising campaign for The National Trust for Scotland. The campaign features Jacobites, which we were happy to supply! We’ll add a link to the campaign as soon as one becomes available. You can view our short, but sweet, appearance in the advertising campaign here: http://www.nts.org.uk/Campaign/Treasures-of-Scotland

Work on site has been ongoing this month, with our main project being the upgrading of our herb garden. Herbs were widely used in medicines and in cooking, so such a garden would not have been out of place in a medieval fortified village. If you’re coming along to Spirit of Duncarron in June, you’ll be able to see them on site.

We’ve added a new ‘Galleries’ feature to the page and you can see some images of the garden in progress. The ‘Galleries’ will be added to, showing images of events and projects at The Village, so make sure you check in regularly! You can get the Galleries by following the page’s toolbar tab (under the header banner) or by clicking HERE!

Finally, and talking about the header banner, we have a new one! Isn’t it pretty! A huge thank you to friend of the trust, Paul Reeves, for putting it together for us. Be sure to follow our Clanranald, Duncarron, Education and Combat International Facebook pages for more information on the work that The Clanranald Trust for Scotland does.
