Ancestry and Family History Tours
We can take you on a journey
Let Strathspey Tours help you walk in the footsteps of your Scottish ancestors. Join bespoke Ancestry and Family History Tours to discover your Scottish Highland roots.
Learn about your ancestry & family history origins
Being a qualified genealogist and accredited member of the Association of Scottish Genealogists and Researchers in Archives , I’m ideally placed to research your ancestry and compile family history tours.
Appearing on the popular TV programs, Who Do You Think You Are? and ‘The Generation Frame and working in the Highland Archive Centre in Inverness means I’m familiar with many of the resources and locations required for research. Strathspey Tours is an accredited member of the Ancestral Welcome! scheme with Visit Scotland, Scotland’s national tourism organisation.
If you’ve already done research or only just beginning, you can’t beat local knowledge and expertise to enhance your ancestor’s story.
Ancestral tourism is a great way to discover Scotland and areas connected with your family. I can carry out research prior to your visit and create a bespoke tour to houses, farms, churches, castles and cemeteries connected with your family and clan. Even produce a family tree for you to take back.
Well worth a visit is the Highland Folk Museum near Newtonmore. Here you can experience the social conditions in the Highlands from the early 18th century, around the time of Culloden to the mid 20th century. The local Grantown Museum also gives an insight into the history of the area.
The excellent Clan Macpherson museum tells the story of clan life, history and tradition pre and post the ’45 Jacobite Rising.
A bespoke guided tour around these sites will bring your ancestral heritage to life…enhancing your knowledge of their lives.
So, plan that trip of a lifetime which will let you walk in the footsteps of your Scottish Ancestors!
