Homecoming is a year long programme that showcases Scotland with a focus on Scottish ancestry. A series of events are planned throughout the year with themes such as dance, music, food and drink. While visiting Scotland why not explore the country on a guided tour. We are offering transportation to various Highland Games throughout the summer which is a traditional Scottish sporting event that include such ancient sports as the caber toss and hammer throw. And with plenty of food and drink it is a great day out for everyone. See our Featured Inverness Tours Page >>
