Fancy learning something new?

Posted on Updated on

The latest list of courses offered by the Cairngorms Learning Partnership has been released.

On the schedule is French, outdoor painting, landscape photography and life drawing. Even if you’re just looking for inspiration, perhaps the birdsong course is the one for you!

And our very own tutor, Angus Grant is doing another silversmithing course.

Better quick to book your place! Get more information on the CLP website.

Sharp focus on Grantown

Posted on Updated on

The Grantown 250 celebrations of last year are back this summer, with a schedule of fun events.

Among them is a photography competition focussing on the architectural heritage of Grantown.

There are prizes in three categories – Under 16s, 16-24 and 25+.

Anyone with a camera (or a mobile phone!) can enter – the emphasis is on creativity and depicting the built features of Grantown in an interesting way.

Images must be taken in 2016 in or around Grantown, showing a building or other architecture.

Entries, which cost £3 each, have to be submitted by the end of May.

Posters with more information can be seen around the town or you can contact the organiser of the Grantown 250 extravaganza, Bill Sadler at
