Welcome to the Island Hopping edition of WeeBox,
Today we are paying a visit to some of Scotlands most beautiful and remote places and learning a bit about island life.
Although less than 100 are inhabited, Scotland has over 790 islands! Many of which have their own unique cultures, histories and accents - while we can’t visit them all today, we are going to be hopping around Harris, Lewis and Skye to give you a wee snapshot of what our islands have to offer.”
Passport to Scotland
With ancient origins, Scottish Clans are celebrated across the world and this month WeeBox is proud to bring you the ‘Clan Gathering’ no matter where you are!
The tribal instinct is as old as mankind. The Scottish Nation, which came together between the 6th and 14th centuries, was to absorb many immigrants in the process of its creation. Few aspects of Scotland’s fascinating history were as colourful, or as bloody, as the clan system. From ancient origins in the Celtic, Norse or Norman-French traditions, by the 13th century, the clans had grown firm roots in the Highlands of Scotland.
While the term ‘clan’ means family or children in Gaelic, not everyone in the same clan was actually related to each other. The clans lived off the land, with cattle being their main source of wealth and, along with border disputes, the prime cause of inter-clan unrest.
Today, many clans can be traced back to a specific part of Scotland, for example the MacLeods of Skye, the MacNeils of Barra or the MacNabs of St Fillan on Loch Earn. If you have ancestral ties and a clan history in Scotland, a trip to your clan’s homeland is an incomparable and moving experience like no other.
May's WeeBox is celebrating all things
Outlander, so sit back, relax and join us as we go 'through the stones' with Andy the Highlander, visit some of the show's most iconic locations and hear some of their real history too!
Known as the icon of the Highlands, we salute our beloved ‘hairy cow’, the oldest cattle breed in the world.
To take a closer look at these magnificent, bonnie beasts we called in the help of Kitchen Coos & Ewes!
Join Andy, Janet, Neale and their beautiful coos for a 30 minute tour as we learn all about these amazing animals, including how they can see so well with their long hair, why they are ginger, why Coo politics is like Game of Thrones, lunkie holes, dry stone Dykes, Super Moo-dels and much more!
