Places to stay and eat

Over the years, we’ve helped many people living overseas to research their Scottish family history. Many choose to visit Scotland to connect to their ancestors. We’ve compiled a selection of links to places to stay and eat and to people who can help you plan a holiday. If you are planning to walk in the footsteps of your ancestors then get in touch and we can arrange a booklet to help you find your way around.

Genealogy links

There’s such a wealth of information online that sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. We have put together some links to genealogy sites that we find genuinely useful. These relate mostly to our specialist area, the Scottish Borders and Dumfriesshire.

Family history societies

Family history societies are a wonderful place to find out what publications are available for your area of research. They offer great advice and if you are a member there are lots of added extras too so it’s definitely worth checking them out.
