Is Scotland on your Winter Wanderlist?22nd November 2019
Ever wondered if you have Scottish roots?
The Scots have always been keen travellers. From crossing the seas to start new lives across the Atlantic to searching for work opportunities on the other side of the world, many settled elsewhere and started families in faraway lands, leaving Scottish ancestry scattered across the world’s population. From fishermen in stunning remote villages to lords and ladies of the most luxurious castles, your ancestors may have walked countless corners of this breath-taking land.
Allow us to trace your family history through Scotland and take you on an unforgettable journey following your ancestor's ancient footsteps!
If you’ve always dreamed of tracing this ancestry to find out how your family lived, with our expert knowledge and local contacts, Sleigh’s can help you plan this once in a lifetime trip. We will tailor your tour to the last detail so that you have the chance to experience your own history first-hand. We can arrange for a genealogist to research your family name so that we’ll know exactly where your family connections lie, and plan your trip around that.
