Once again we have been invited to take our coracles to a series of events throughout the summer at the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. We will participate at the Vintage Day on 27 May, Heritage in Action Days every Thursday in July and the first two in August, and the Outlander Day on 9 June. On each day from 10.00 until 17.00. We hope to have five coracles on the Mill Pond - not a huge area but big enough for folk to experience paddling. The pond has about 3 feet of water at its deepest point deep. It is sheltered from the wind so weather does not bother us too much.
Further to our news item in our recent spring newsletter, Arrowcraft Engineering have produced their first fibreglass Towy coracle, moulded from Towy coracle used by the Carmarthen Coracle and Netsmen's Association. They will shortly be delivering the coracle the Society has donated funds for to the Carmarthen coraclers.
