Hielan’ Ways Symposium: Perceptions of Exploration

Hielan’ Ways Symposium: Perceptions of Exploration

Deveron Arts are coming to Tomintoul and Glenlivet on the 14th and 15th November with their ‘Hielan’ Ways Symposium: Perceptions of Exploration‘. The two-day conference will bring together the arts and the outdoors to explore the human, cultural and environmental heritage of the ancient drovers routes in the remote areas between the heart of Aberdeenshire farmland and the Cairngorm Mountains, known as the Hielan’ Ways.

The event includes a one day walking symposium around Scalan Seminary in the Braes of Glenlivet, followed by dinner, the premiere of renowned Scottish musician Paul Anderson’s Hielan’ Symphony and a Ceilidh with Jonny Hardie from the band Old Blind Dogs. Day two gives you talks from legendary mountaineer Doug Scott, artist Richard LongKaren Darke, paraplegic adventurer and athlete, and Gavin Pretor-Pinney from the Cloud Appreciation Society.
