Scottish hero Rob Roy is brought to life at a new 350 000 exhibition housed in a former church in Callander, Scotland. Commissioned by the former Stirling District Council, design group Skakel & Skakel worked with the council’s architect David Smith, audio-visual specialist A Slight Shift, writer and researcher Jim Farley, and Kevan R Shaw Lighting Design. The group has incorporated a recreation of an eighteenth century ‘blackhouse’ and a tableau of Rob Roy and one of his men talking by a camp fire. ‘It’s as if the visitor has come across them unexpectedly and is eavesdropping on their conversation,’ says Richard Skakel.
