About Fergus
Fergus grew up on the shores of Loch Rannoch, tucked in the north of Highland Perthshire, and it instilled in him a love of Scotland's landscape and wildlife. After graduating from Scotland's oldest university (St Andrews, MA History & Archaeology), and one of Scotland's newer ones (Edinburgh Napier University, MSc Heritage & Cultural Tourism Management,) he worked as a traditional musician, performing in pubs, at ceilidhs and folk festivals, playing banjo, mandolin, bouzouki, and singing Gàidhlig songs. As an archaeologist, Fergus loves to draw the history of a place into its geological, social and cultural contexts. Edinburgh has been his home on-and-off throughout his life and it inspires these intriguing connections.
