Silver Sporran of Stuart MacLauren by Bambi Smyth


Silver Sporran of Stuart MacLauren by Bambi Smyth

Mad Maps combine an adventure story, an interactive puzzle-solving treasure hunt, quizzes and facts as a way to learn about history and stimulate creative thinking. In this adventure there's a map of the Scottish Highlands, with its lochs and mountains. Alongside the map are 28 verses plotting the route taken by a bold explorer back in 1396 on his expedition to find the silver sporran of Stuart MacLauren. But did he ever find the treasure? Follow his route and use the cryptic clues to see if you can unveil the secret hiding place of the shiny silver sporran. There's also a 14 page booklet containing informative and fun quizzes and an essential Ancient Scotland fact file with fascinating facts about the bloody battles and brilliant brave clansmen.
