Watch this space!!! We are developing a full programme of events, challenges, lectures and educational activities which will allow you to experience the Castle and community in a way you never thought possible.
Every event contributes to the fundraising for the Castle allowing you to have fun and support a deserving charity – ‘Our Castle, Your Castle’.
Our fundraising events programme had just got underway when corona virus stopped all our activities, workshops and performances. 2020 became the year for radical ‘rethinking’ for the fundraising team as we strive to create inclusive learning opportunities which provide a model for future events, work with a range of third party partners, and develop a truly unique experience within heritage. We are limited in what we can do at the castle, but we are lucky to have our beautiful grounds for small events in 2021.
What have we done in
Jacobite Re-Enactment weekend
Battles, bushcraft, stories, music, birds of prey and loads more entertained for the weekend.
Children's Treasure Hunt
Children searched the castle grounds to lead them to the treasure at the end of the trail.
An evening of Wildcats (lecture)
Learning about the elusive Wildcat – Wildcats feature heavily in Clan Farquharson.
Dancing the night away to Scottish ceilidh music.
Jim Smith and Friends filled the room with fun and laughter for a night of comedy.
Local and national businesses supported our winter raffle.
Raising the standard is gradual process. The first few pulls on the cord can be hard work. Then it slips through the fingers more easily. Sometimes from the ground, looking up, it looks like the standard is closer than it really is to the top of the flag staff.
Raising funds is like raising a flag: the job is never complete until the last pull on the halyard. So it is that we need every last act of generosity to reach our goal.
