Hello and welcome!

Hello! Welcome to my historical blog.

I am Andrew and I’m the Highland Historian. I offer heritage consultancy services, including historical and genealogical research; and guided tours, including site, half-day, day and multi-day tours. Please visit or email for more information.

Amongst my experiences, I have a Master of Arts degree in Scottish Historical Studies and I’m a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. I have been employed as a tour guide at numerous sites, am a Trustee of Castle Leod and was the Manager of Culloden Battlefield from 2014-2018. More about my experiences and background can be found here.

On this blog, we will discover the true background to the folk traditions and culture that make the Scottish Highlands an incredible place to live and visit.

Please like, share, comment, get in touch and ask as many questions as you can! They will inspire me to write for you!

I look forward to meeting you on your Highland Historian tour!

All contributions received will be much appreciated and will support the continuation of this work.
