One of the longest tapestries in the UK, if not the world, was unveiled by artist Andrew Crummy, reported The BBC News.
Two hundred volunteers from around the world stitched panels depicting Bonnie Prince Charlie's journey from South Uist to the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745. The tapestry is 338ft long, nearly 100ft longer than the Bayeux tapestry (which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England in 1066). The tapestry will now go on to tour Scotland.
