A FOUR DAY TOUR OF 5000 YEARS OF HUMAN HIGHLAND HISTORY.

 

WHAT WE SAY: The Highlands are renowned for their unspoilt beauty but what is less well known is that the landscape harbours an unrivalled collection of sites of national historical importance.

On this tour we will accompany you on a time traveller’s journey starting around 3500BC and taking you right into the modern era. We will visit ancient burial tombs, mysterious stone circles, Viking battle sites, ruined medieval castles and the deserted villages of the Highland Clearances.

The last 200 years have also contributed greatly to the development of the region and we will go exploring for abandoned World War Two camps and investigate the boom and bust of the fishing industry too.
