NOTE: A few events are still to be confirmed. Also, details of events are rather like the state of the global economy liable to change from time to time. So it's always best to check this website before you attend any of the events. On the other hand, life is intrinsically unpredictable as we explained in Sunflowers, Seashells and Green Shoots of Spring in Dingwall on Friday 14. Anyway, if you have any queries, please don't hesitate to use our Enquiries Page.
