Bring your ancestry to life with the people and the places
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.
“John organised the whole ancestry trip for us. Extremely knowledgeable about the local / social history of the Grantown area and brought the family tree to life. Highly recommended.” D. Milne, Windsor
Well worth a visit is the Highland Folk Museum near Newtonmore.
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 the Battle of Culloden to the mid 20th century. The local Grantown Museum also gives an insight into the Clan Grant and the history of the area.
The excellent Clan Macpherson museum also in Newtonmore, 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 Ancestry.
What People Have said
It has been a privilege to help people trace their roots
I just want to say thank you again for your help and professionalism, you are a master craftsman. You really did save me a great deal of time and probably stress, stress from trying to get where you took me and not knowing how to get there.
John was very thorough in using all sources available to conduct the research and his report was a valuable, detailed, summary of what he had done and contained his advice about the advisability of further research. I highly recommend him.
