About Shining Lives

Shining Lives: Fortunes of Fate is a lighting, projection and living history event which will tell the story of The Fortune Ship Highlanders, beginning with their ill-fated voyage from Skye to North Carolina and travelling with them to a new life at New Lanark Cotton Mills.

Journey with us through New Lanark’s iconic landscape, and watch as the 230-year-old mill buildings bring to life new films and live characters, interwoven with imagery from our rich archive.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Shining Lives are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
