Birnam Arts & Conference Centre

Our local Birnam Arts Centre has lots of exciting events this coming Spring.

Starting off in seasonal style they’ve got Burns – The Songwriter, swiftly followed with an illustrated talk, Ribbon of Wildness – Discovering the Watershed of Scotland.

Next on is the hilarious comedy The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, then the Scottish Community Drama Association’s Festival of One Act Plays. Imaginative, interactive children’s theatre follows
with Starcatcher’s The Attic.

Next, The Shee, an all female band,
including a clog dancer!

The much aniticipated YolanDa Brown plus band, our
cover artist, follows on, then classical music & drama with Michael Lunts’ A Wanderer Fantasy.

The fabulous Stax of Motown return for a command performance and then, 1930s Berlin comes to Birnam Arts with the stunning Cabaret Chordelia. Finishing off proceedings is the Maxwell String Quartet with a fabulous programme of music to whet the appetite of the classically minded.

Cairn Gorm National Park 7th January.

Craigatin House spent the afternoon at 1097metres above sea level on the Cairn Gorm mountain near Aviemore.   

Minus 16 degrees with the wind chill did not deter loads of skiers and snowboarders making the most of the conditions.

There are few destinations in the world more beautiful than the Cairngorms National Park during winter. As the snow falls the range of activities to enjoy becomes all the more extensive.

For us, the hot chocolate in the mountain cafe
was a much better choice!

Whether you plan to ski down the Cairn Gorm Mountain or not, you’ll still want to scale its heights to enjoy the incredible views across Aviemore, Strathspey and further afield in Scotland.
