Join Highland Council’s Countryside Rangers in and around Inverness this month for some fun and informative events as part of Highland Archaeology Festival. 

Four activities have been organised at Abriachan, Clava, Foyers and Culloden all with an archaeological theme.

Starting with a Clans, Plants and Landscape walk at Abriachan this Saturday 4 October from 2 - 4pm, participants can find out how plants, animals and landscape have held meaning for people throughout history and make their own clan badge.

The next event is on Wednesday 8 October from 2 - 4pm at Clava Cairns where Archaeologist Indiana Bones, the ‘expert’ on Clava Cairns and other characters from the past will inform participants about the Bronze Age.

On Friday 10 October 2 - 4pm, learn all about how the world came to Foyers in an Archaeology in Foyers walk – the Hydro legacy. Meet at Foyers shop car park.

A guided tour of Culloden Estate will also be given on Wednesday 15 October, 2 - 4pm, join the Rangers and lots of characters from the time of Culloden who will be there to meet and greet.
