Why not include the North Highland Way on your trip when going to the Caithness Broch Festival?

Another beautiful location to explore history and heritage is Caithness. Located on the west coast of the most northerly point of Scotland, you can take part in some small scale excavations and walks at the Caithness Brochs! A Broch is only typically found in Scotland and is a stone walled structure, round in shape.
From the 13th to the 16th of October, Caithness Broch Festival is hosting two events one at Bruan Broch, the other at Thing’s Va Broch. With no experience required, why not try something new? Celebrate the Year of Heritage and History with a trip to Scotland’s north coast. Also, you can incorporate the North Highland Way! This is a unique chance to learn more about Scottish culture.
