GUIDED STORY WALKS WITH AWARD WINNING STORY TELLER, FOLKLORIST & POET GRIOGAIR MACALLEIN

Explore the low level landscape of Assynt with Lochinver based Award winning Story teller, Folklorist & Poet, Griogair MacAllein.

These walks, visiting old crofting settlements, peat roads, rivers and woods are often overlooked and under appreciated and suitable for all degrees of experience and abilities. Families always welcome.

Discover what stories lie beneath the stones? Hiding in the bracken? Waiting on the riverbanks? Lurking in dark lochans? In the corners of old croft houses?
Also, find out about how the environment shaped the beliefs and folklore of past generations. Learn to use bush craft to create shelters and visual art and to understand the ‘Traveller’s signs of the ‘old ways’.

These story walks are both an entertaining and educational experience.
