Inverness Tours has used professional expertise to develop high quality
Clan Tours, as their input to this very special year.
The Clan System was very territorial. Each of the
Clans occupied a specific area. The size of this area and the associated power might wax and wane at different times in history, but the whole
clan system was inextricably bound into the idea of specific
In Gaelic, if you were to ask where someone was from, you would ask “Co as a tha sibh?” The direct translation is “Who are you from?” You don’t need to ask more than that, because knowing who tells you where.
Bearing all of this in mind we have developed these Clan Tours to take you into a given
Clan’s ancestral area, often with a look at the castle which was the original
Clan seat, or their place of power.
Where we are visiting the lands of a more powerful clan there may be a number of castles to view. Some castles are, of course, in ruins. We also visit the
market town or village of your Clan, and other places of significance. These may include the sites of
heroic deeds or even the hereditary burial grounds.
Every Clan comes complete with its clan songs,
clan legends, clan feuds, clan stories and places of power
and we are ideally placed to awaken all of this sleeping history, and bring it to life with you enjoying a centre-front seat.
