Special Highland Tour for Descendants of Selkirk Settlers

This is an add-on package to the basic genealogy tour. The Highland Clearances were some of the darkest times in Scottish Highland history. Many families who were burned out of their homes later emigrated to Canada with the assistance of Thomas Douglas, 5th Earl of Selkirk. This add-on package will help you re-visit some of the highland areas that once were home to the Selkirk Settlers.

This 7 night package takes you to Oban (where the ships sailed from), and into Mull (2 nights), Iona and then Skye (2 nights). From Skye we travel to Dornoch (2 nights) with a side trip into the Kildonan Valley. Upon our return, we stay in Glasgow in preparation for the flight back to Canada.
