The Association will be working closely with Mr Andy Edwards on the project, who will record the old tradition and stories so they can be preserved and enjoyed by future generations.
Highland Folk Museum Vintage Day
Sunday 27 May 2018 (All day)
Submitted by rgreen on 25 February 2018 - 22:05.
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. 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.
