The Brahan Seer

Highland history is full of fascinating characters and stories.  Munro Highland Tours offers a unique trip which focuses on one particularly intriguing character – the Brahan Seer, a man also referred to as the Gaelic Nostradamus.Kenneth Mackenzie, known as Coinneach Odhar in Gaelic, is believed by many to have prophesied many significant events in history, such as the Battle of Culloden and the Second World War.

It’s believed he used an oval shaped stone with a hole through the centre, passed down to him by his mother in Western Isles, to predict the future destiny of mankind.  The tour will take you to a number of locations of significance to the Brahan Seer and your guide will enlightens you about the life and death of this truly interesting figure.
