Queen Victoria’s Highland Journals performed by VIRGINIA McKENNA in a dramatised setting

“...these journals offer us so many insights into the paraphernalia that accompanied the royal progress north... Virginia McKenna reads beautifully.” (Sunday Times)

“This quirky and vivid aural tapestry is jam-packed with sound effects... and is further enhanced by McKenna’s genteel narration.” (Scotland on Sunday)

“A chronicle of life at Balmoral, both before and after Prince Albert’s death. Very effectively read by Virginia McKenna.” (Sunday Telegraph)

Succeeding William IV in 1837, Victoria reigned for nearly 64 years and was always a keen chronicler of life around her, through both her paintings and the detailed diary she kept from the age of 13. Queen Victoria’s Highland Journals cover the period from 1848 to 1882 and provide a fascinating insight into those long “never-to-be-forgotten days” she spent with her family in her much beloved Scottish Highlands.
