Walks and Talks on Schiehallion

Thrilled to announce – with the support of Creative Scotland – we are organising a mini-festival on and around Schiehallion from the 19th of April with The Great Lines exhibition on show at the Alan Reece Gallery, Pitlochry throughout.

‘We’ are (me) the John Muir Trust and Artlink Central who came up with the brilliant idea of erecting a temporary yurt on Schiehallion to run some of the activities from. In so many ways they are a great partner, their work is all about diversity, bringing artists together with people experiencing exclusion, disability or disadvantage. It’s a dream team as the John Muir Trust engages people with wild places.There are a number of events that are open to all, two of them – if you are in the vicinity, or happy to travel – are:

A ‘Contour Walk’ on Sunday 22nd April, 10am till 3pm. This will be an exploratory walk along one altitude of Schiehallion observing the differences between South and North faces. We will focus on the flora and fauna (with Dr Liz Auty from the Trust), but also explore the mountain’s history and the surveying of it in the 1770’s… yes, that’s my thing. Places are limited please book early through Eventbrite.

Then on Saturday 28 we have a series of talks at Pitlochry Festival Theatre titled ‘Four Views of Schiehallion’, with Chris Fleet, Robin Johnson, Liz and myself and – hot off the press – live music too thanks to Munro Gauld. The Eventbrite page for this is live already.

Both these events are free, but booking essential.
