Program 1652: Muir of Gormack (January 22, 2015) Week 4

The area of wilderness known as the Muir of Gormack was first mentioned in 1776 by scholars who labeled it a “Caledonian Camp” for its prehistoric remains of hut-circles, cairns and decorated stones.  Dougie MacLean evokes the setting and imagines the ancient culture in “Muir of Gormack – a Pictish story.”
