Travelling People at Stoneyfield

A group of Travelling people at Stoneyfield, near Inverness. Like their Romany counterparts, Highland Travellers are a nomadic people who have traditionally maintained a sparse existence, travelling between the villages of the settled population and living in primitive bow-tents. On the way they have found work as tin-smiths, hawkers, horse-dealers and pearl-fishers; as well as entertainers, salesmen and news-bringers
