This free storytelling event will take place at Diarmuid’s Grave at the Spittal of Glenshee where you will be able to listen to both the Story of Diarmuid and Gráinne, which is linked to this four poster stone circle, and to a new story linked to the legend – The Awakening – that Lindsey Gibb created in 2021 especially for the temporary 9,000 sqm installation of a giant hand sited on the Coire Lairige on the far side of the Spittal, co-designed by artists Martin McGuinness and Fraser Gray to coincide with COP26.
Places are limited to a maximum number of 15 participants and booking in advance is essential – you can find further information and secure your place here.

This session is part of The Cateran Ecomuseum’s Travel For All Our Tomorrow’s programme which offers a number of free, active travel for leisure experiences co-designed with local communities and led by local people and which aims to encourage more people in the Tayside region to enjoy what is on their doorstep, rather than increase their carbon footprint by travelling further afield.
