Join us at this great event, when the Celebrating Speyside project is culminating in a heritage festival to showcase the important work that has been carried out during the last six month in engaging children with their history and heritage. It is going to be a weekend full of interesting activities and displays, including an exhibition, a storytelling session and a theatre play by the children from Kingussie and Newtonmore Primary Schools. You can also try your hands on our dig pit, be a stonemason or architectural technician, learn how to survey and record old buildings, explore Newtonmore through old maps, delve in the history of the Clan Macpherson and even go further afield through a Virtual Reality experience.

The festival takes place in Newtonmore and Kingussie on Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th of May from 10 am to 4 pm. All events and activities are free!
