January — December

Come home to Speyside and the Moray Firth coast. Walk where your ancestors walked, look out over the hills and glens they knew, even touch the stones of their birthplace. Your private tour will be devoted to your personal journey of discovery.

Already know your Scottish ancestry?

Welcome – we’re all one big family in Scotland! You may already have traced your forebears to specific locations: using information supplied by you – houses (perhaps even castles!), farms, churchyards, Census records – I will connect you with your ancestors’ lives. Your tour will reflect exactly where you need to visit to walk in their footsteps.

Researching your Scottish ancestry

Congratulations – you’re on an exciting journey! If you’re just starting out, or have come up against that brick wall and would like some help, I can link you with a professional genealogist here in Scotland.  Then, with leads to explore, I can create a bespoke tour for you which will bring your ancestors’ story to life and immerse you in their surroundings. My knowledge of local archives and family history centres will help you delve further during your visit.

It would be my privilege to help you discover your family’s heritage – contact Speyside Escapes to create your journey home.
