The Summer Walkers are the pearl-fishers, tinkers, hawkers and horse-dealers of the North-West Highlands in Scotland. These travellers are not gypsies. They are indigenous, Gaelic-speaking nomads with a particular moral code. They are perhaps one of Europe's last nomadic people whose story will have a tremendous significance for social history.
