The Cateran Trail lies in the heartlands of the Kingdom of the Picts. Known as ‘Picti’ by the Romans, meaning ‘Painted Ones’ in Latin, these northern tribes constituted the largest kingdom in Dark Age Scotland. They repelled the conquests of both Romans and Angles, creating a true north-south divide on the British Isles, only to disappear from history by the end of the first millennium… This extraordinary photo, from the British Museum’s collection is of a drawing of a Pictish Warrior by John White (1585 – 1593) – as he imagined one to be!
