The First family of 6 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh was the Campbell family. A family whose wealth was made from the Brewing industry.
The Campbell family faced much tragedy. Above the family mausoleum in St Cuthbert’s, “Follow me” is inscribed.
Since 1966, the Campbell’s old home has been known as “Bute House” and is the official residence of Scotland’s First Minister.
This film is a plea for those elected Ministers gathering around the table in Bute House for the weekly Cabinet meeting to embrace Scottish intellectual pluralism. It is also a plea to recall all families of Scotland, however ordinary or extraordinary, and wherever their first home may have been.
