Afternoon Seminar - At the end of September, 1916, with the weather almost calm and quite clear, the occupants of a fishing boat from Stronsay spotted an excited mob of gulls swooping and diving on an object which appeared to be lying on some rocks. Taking it to be a dead whale, they rowed up to the scene. Although the centre part was above water, they could see what looked like a large dirty bugger on its back. The owner of the boat managed to lift up one of the legs, revealing the carcass as that of Scots actor, Ewen MacGregor. 100 years later, we are proud to invite the corpse to be examined by subscribers, in this unique afternoon seminar.
