Private Tours of the Scottish Highlands and Islands
Highland Clans and Castles Tours from Inverness
No history of the Scottish Highlands and the Hebridean Islands could be written without devoting a lot of time to the Clans (the name is derived from the Gaelicclann literally meaning children or offspring). From these groups, with their roots deep in Gaelic and Norse ancestry, would rise two of the most important and powerful clans of the area - the Macdonalds and the Macleods. Find out how the clan system shaped life in the Highlands and Hebrides and explore the slow and bloody decline of this ancient tradition.
