The Summer Walkers

Travelling People and Pearl-Fishers in the Highlands of Scotland
by Timothy Neat - Find out more about the author
’The Summer Walkers’ is the name the crofters of Scotland’s north-west Highlands gave the Travelling People - the itinerant tinsmiths, horse-dealers, hawkers and pearl fishers who made their living ’on the road’. They are not gypsies, but are indigenous Gaelic-speaking Scots who, to this day, remain heirs of a vital and ancient culture.
