…de la Miami Herald:

Take a walk down Caladh Avenue, framed with street posts displaying Scottish tartan symbols, to the waterfront at the Hector Heritage Quay, where tartans from the clans of settlers fill the entry hall.

Meander through the colorful exhibits to learn about how a brave and proud group of Scots made their way from their homeland in 1773 on a perilous Atlantic Ocean journey. They took the risk after their clans, tartans and kilts, Celtic music, Gaelic language and bagpipes had been banned by the British monarchy after the Scots' defeat in the bloody Battle of Culloden.
