Explore where your family came from in Scotland.
Searching family roots comes broadly into 2 types of tour.
If you know which town your Scottish Ancestor came from. we can travel there and have a good look round -- visiting churches, schools or other public buildings that they may have known and frequented. If you have an address for them even better!
If you have dates of birth or death, we can check out graveyards as well.
If you don't have this depth of information, but know the surnames, we can visit the area your clan or family was most likely based, including visiting castles, battlefield sites, etc.
In both cases the more information you can provide me beforehand, the more preparation I can do and the more productive a day we will have together.
This will depend on your family information and how much research I can do beforehand with you.
However, the day will start with me picking you up at your hotel or ship and travelling to the area your family came from. We will then have a good look round, have lunch somewhere in your family's area and then do some more research. We will look at graveyards as well, as they often contain a lot of information about other members of your family
Then we head back to your base.
Please note, if there is a lot of travelling to do, or a lot to see when we get there, it may be worth considering a second day, possibly with an overnight stay --again in "your" family area.
