A guided walk from Dava (‘Jesus Saves’ Stone) back to Grantown, looking and learning along the way… To raise funds for Grantown Museum, just turn up at the museum, bring a drink, packed lunch and appropriate clothing, donate some money and have a lovely social walk with a friendly bunch of people. Duncan will guide us with some pearls of wisdom along the way….. tea and biscuits afterwards in the museum.
Coming soon a fantastic model Corgarff castle complete with Jacobites – really exciting to start a programme of changing lego models – watch out!
This summer we are presenting an exhibition that will explore the impact that World war one had on the people of Strathspey,
2018 marks the Centenary of the end of the First World War, a landmark anniversary for Britain and the world. Strathspey & The Great War explores the role and impact of the conflict on the lives and families of the local community through the fascinating reportage of the local newspaper, The Strathy.
With so many loved ones far away, news was incredibly important to people at home. Newspapers became a lifeline, reporting what was happening politically, informing families of losses and publishing extracts of letters from the front. From the intriguing story of the mossgathers, to reports home from the Front, The Strathy was not only a reporter but an instigator, interrogator, encourager, an opinion giver and agent provocateur.
We have been working with local people to bring some of their family stories and personal objects to the light.
