Once again, for the third year running, 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 Sunday 28 May, Heritage in Action Days every Thursday in July and the first two in August, and the Outlander Day on Saturday 26 August. 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. Last year we had about 420 people on the water, both young and old - with just one IN the water, an over ambitious grandfather! - and generated much interest.
