Unforgettable showcases the untold stories of people from marginalised communities whose lives shaped or were shaped by Scotland and highlights their contribution to Scotland’s history. Their stories have been told by a variety of voices who have a connection to the story, including Rebecca (pictured) who uncovered and wrote Agnes' story.

Some of them lived simple lives, some of them paved the way for others, here they are all celebrated as part of Scotland's story.

The exhibition is part of Scotland's Year of Stories 2022 and features images from the HES archives as well as specially commissioned artworks.
