Highland Archaeology Festival 2017

The festival is provided by the Highland Council and runs over two weeks each October to celebrate the heritage of the Highlands. Whether you are a seasoned archaeologist or a complete beginner, the festival will let you explore an amazing range of places and collections.  The programme includes a wide array of events provided by local experts and national organisations and includes walks, talks, tours, workshops, exhibitions and much more – all focussing on Highland heritage from prehistoric times to the 20th century. There’s something to suit everyone and many of the events are free!

This year the festival runs from 30th September - 15th October, with the Recent Archaeological Discoveries and Research Conference to be held 14th/15th October at Council Headquarters, Glenurquhart Road in Inverness. Further details about events will be posted as they become available. In the meantime, if you have any questions, contact us.

In the meantime, why not explore some areas using self-guided trails?
