Costumed Characters to Bring History Tour to Life

Costumed characters from the past will add an authentic touch to a guided walk led by The Highland Council’s Countryside Rangers against the dramatic backdrop of Culloden House and woods in Inverness.

This Easter holiday family event, on Wednesday 2 April, will be a chance to meet an array of colourful characters from Culloden’s past during a wander on foot around some of the places of historical interest in the area, including the Clootie Well, Prisoners’ Stone, Doocot and Stables.  The walk will finish with tea and biscuits served in the auspicious surroundings of Culloden House.
John Orr, Countryside ranger for Inverness East and Nairn said, “This is a fascinating walk through Culloden’s past and this year there will be even more characters to meet which should really bring the rich history of this area to life. The walk starts outside Culloden House and winds its way up through Culloden woods with a few surprises on the way.”

This guided walk is organised as part of The Highland Council’s Planning and Development Services countryside events programme.  The walk, which starts at 2pm and runs until 5pm, is suitable for individual adults and family groups.  All children must be accompanied.  The route is 3.2 km (2 miles) and is a little steep in places. There is a charge of £4 for adults and £2 for children and all places must be pre-booked by telephoning 01463 710786.

The Highland Council Countryside Rangers are a partnership between The Highland Council and Scottish Natural Heritage with the aim of promoting public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and conserving wildlife.
