Stock Description


'The Summer Walkers' is the name the crofters of Scotland's northwest Highlands gave the traveling 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."
