Day 5 - The Emigrants Statue - Helmsdale.jpg

This statue is located just before you enter Helmsdale on the A9 heading North. Its is labeled 'The Emigrants'.
It commemorates the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland who, in the face of great adversity, sought freedom, hope and justice beyond these shores. They and their descendants went forth and explored continents, built great countries and cities and gave their enterprise and culture to the world. Their voices will echo forever thro the empty straths and glens of their homeland.
