For Ian Walker, researching your Scottish roots is more than just filling out names on the family tree; it’s about getting a sense of who you really are. Visit Scotland to follow in the footsteps of your ancestors and you might just feel like you’ve come home. Scotland. A spirit of its own. https://goo.gl/0vVwWV
Genealogist and tour guide Ian reckons that it’s pretty easy to discover your Scottish family history, thanks to great resources and archives. Your research might lead you to graveyards where kinsmen have been buried in centuries gone by or towns where they lived or worked. Uncovering your family heritage could even take you to historic churches and abbeys, monuments and even battlefields, such as Culloden, where relatives fought as part of Highland clans. Trace your origins and you can make a unique connection with Scotland’s past.
