The Ceardannan

The Ceardannan, nowadays usually called Summer Walkers, are a Scottish tribe of travelling craftsmen, whom Steffen had the chance to meet when he was travelling through Scotland. Because his first project was going to be abroad in a sunny country while it would be winter at home, Steffen felt like he would walk the summer too. Moreover, because he had clients all over the world, he would have to travel a lot for the job and work wherever he would go, just as the members of the tribe. So he thought Ceardannan was an appropriate name for the business.
