Scottish history, amazing views, a lovely walk, delicious cake and coffee at the top of the hill and the company of Fergus the Shetland pony! Errichel has teamed up with Richard Hiden, a local Archaeologist with an interest in Scottish Prehistory and Experimental Archaeology. Richard, our Farm Guides and our Shetland Pony Fergus, (who will carry refreshments) will take you on a walk over the hill at Errichel Farm, visiting sites of interest, from the place of a farm steading dating back to the middle ages, to sites of prehistoric round huts and evidence of ancient rigged cultivation. The sites are undisturbed - to the untrained eye it would be easy to pass them by for rocks, heather and grass. Richard will bring these areas to life, describing how people would have lived and worked the land over the millennia.
The walk is approximately 4 km with some steep sections over uneven ground. Good walking boot/shoes essential. Tea/Coffee and cake will be served at the top of the hill.
Who is this suitable for? Adults and families with children over 8 years* old.
Ideal for those with an interest in Scottish prehistory, nature, wildlife, walking.
Advance booking essential.
*This is a recommended age - if you have a younger child who is used to walking and enjoys the countryside we can be flexible on this, please discuss with us at the time of booking.
