Why not try a wee story walk instead?


Walk 1 Twa Kirks

 A gentle riverside walk between the Village Square and the ruins of the ancient Kirk o Skirdustan. Stories from 1500 years of local History, Myth and Legend. Picts, Vikings, Jacobites, devastating Floods, Witch Trials and Water Beasties all feature. Were the lives of the Scottish clansmen and women as romantic as some would have us believe?
