HISTORY

Gairloch History

History is all around you, from the Bronze Age hut circles by the Sand River and the remains of the vitrified fort of An Dùn by Gairloch beach to the Destitution roads and the magnificent family seat of the Clan Mackenzie in the wooded Flowerdale glen. Place names speak both of Viking invaders and of the traditional Gaelic culture (Gaelic is still spoken by many local people).
