Qué harás

Pause to get under the skin of the North Coast 500 road route. The coastal township of Clashnessie is noted for its white sands and scenic waterfall, but on this walk-and-talk experience the darker human history of this special place will be revealed. You will find out how it evolved before and after the Highland Clearances. You will be guided to look at clues on the ground to the footprint of early settlement, abandoned crofts, mills, and how people driven out of inland fertile valleys found ways to eke a diverse living on rugged coastal land. Hear the real story of the Cheviot, the stag, and the people, and see that history etched on the landscape. Hear stories of emigration, of two World Wars, of religious extremism, of epidemics, of land-ownership and the community’s return to life in the 21st century. We begin by walking around one to two kilometres on road and some rough ground depending on the capabilities of participants (suitable footwear and waterproofs essential!) At the end of the walk we will return to the leader’s cottage, which has its own history as croft, shop, and self-build, for a slide show, questions, answers, drinks, and traditional goodies.

Qué incluye

I have known the community and landscape where the experience will take place for over fifty years, and as well as walking the landscape, have worked as a University Professor teaching history and literature. I am Scottish by birth and have a deep knowledge of Scottish history and culture.

Dónde estarás

We will visit ruined crofts, look for traces of cultivation, and for clues to the products of the shoreline and bay. At the end of the tour, we will sit in a converted croft cottage and look at old photographs of the community in days gone by.

Más consejos

No “heavy” academic history, but you will be guided to treat traces on the landscape as a puzzle, and engage your imagination in how settlers here lived, ate, worked and played.
