Mither Tap


Following the trail of Pictish tales

September 4, 2015

Aberdeenshire has long been considered one of the heartlands of the Pictish community. You can still see this today, in place names beginning “Pit”, thought to indicate the presence of a Pictish settlement; in the remains of their fortifications, such as Mither Tap; and in their decorative objects. The Picts lived in the area of Scotland north of the Forth and Clyde rivers from the 4th-9th Centuries AD, with a particularly strong presence in what is now Aberdeenshire.
