"Takes you into an unfamiliar world ... remarkable." - Caledonia

"It is a captivating and enjoyable read which is filled with wonderful descriptions… and I am convinced that one day it will be adapted into a film." - Strathearn Herald review of Bruar's Rest

As a consequence of campaign to save the Tinker's Heart many minds have come together to work not just towards educating people on our culture but in sharing it in a positive vein. Heart of the Travellers (HOTT) was born from our new found friendship, a charity organisation, registered SCO454146. (Can also be found on Facebook) Our aims are simple with a combined wish to bring the culture of  Scottish Travellers together for the good of future generations. We are dedicated to promoting our culture and to share with schools, societies, groups etc. Chairman Gavin Macgregor, Secretary Fiona Macallister, Treasurer David Smith, Spokesperson Jess Smith, members Edith Townsley, Cathy Macguigan, Jade Smith. We have a growing membership of friends with our own flag.
