We offer Gold-Panning-Courses at ‘Kildonan’ (8 miles from us) during the Summer-Months, where the biggest Scottish Gold-Rush took place in 1869.
‘There is Gold in that hills’ was the cry in 1868 when Robert Gilchrist discovered Gold at Kildonan.
Six month after that find of Gold at Kildonan, 600 prospectors had made the journey.
The railway went only as far as Golspie, 30 miles short of their destination.
Gold Fever driving them on, the last 30 Miles had to be travelled on foot.
Soon the 19th century Gold Rush had led a shanty town ‘Baile an Or’
(Place Of Gold) on the Kildonan Burn!
In June 1869, a drought led to prospectors being able to plunder the riverbed gravel, and the price of Gold, which at its height had been 4.5o£ an ounce, dropped to 3.5o£.
This, and coastal employment during the herring season, meant that by september
1869, the number of miners dropped back to a mere 50.
At midnight on 30th December 1869, all Gold-Licences expired by decree of the
Duke of Sutherland. It was all over.
