About HARP Archaeology Tours

Have you ever wanted to be an archaeologist? Would you like the chance to try some new activities and see the landscape as an archaeologist sees it? Or perhaps you just want a truly unique and out of the ordinary visit to a beautiful, but quiet, part of Scotland? We would like to offer you the opportunity to join us on an intimate tour of the Scottish Borders.

Your 3 or 5-day Experience contains a maximum of six participants who will be led by two dedicated guides/leaders, including a professional archaeologist. Having worked extensively in the area, your guides have created a bespoke experience for you, not only providing a history of the area and the sites you will visit, but also guiding you through the archaeological methods used to identify and record heritage sites, giving you the opportunity to ‘have a go’. All of this takes place against the stunning backdrop of the Scottish Borders, along with sampling the wares of traditional country inns and hotels.

By taking part you will directly support local Heritage Societies and Trusts whose sites and activities will be front and centre of your Experience, taking you further than a traditional tour ever could.

As a not-for-profit organisation, your support will also feed back into HARP's community outreach and educational programmes, helping more people to learn new skills and engage with archeological sites and their local heritage.
