Join local guide Jamie Grant on a journey through Glen Lyon’s turbulent past. Known also as The Crooked Glen of the Stones Glen Lyon is still shrouded in mystery and folklore and is dotted with archaeological remains that include neolithic cup mark stones and the remains of Pictish forts. In more recent times there are tales of the long running clan feud between the MacGregors and Campbells, pitch battles and daring escapes. There is also a rich social history which Jamie has researched by interviewing some of the older residents of the Glen.

Meeting at Glen Lyon Coffee Roasters in Aberfeldy, Jamie will drive you in his electric car up the Glen to the Bridge of Balgie Tea Room. He will stop along the way to show you key historical sites along the way including, Macgregor’s Leap, Cat Rock, the Roman Bridge, Carbarn Castle, Innerwick Kirk and the Testing Stone. After lunch at the Tea Room we will take a stroll to see cup marked stones, ancient shielings and the Split Rock, also known as the Praying Hands of Mary.

Jamie is a longtime resident of Glen Lyon and has spent years researching the local history. He is also a qualified Mountain Guide and Director of Glen Lyon Coffee Roasters.
