For the first time in 50 years a tall ship will drop anchor in the waters of Moray.

The Lady of Avenel, a spectacular 102ft square-rigged Brigantine, will berth at Buckie, bringing the story of our local coastal and maritime heritage and culture to life through music, song, and story.

Conceived by Scottish musician and tall ship captain Barry Nisbet, especially for Scotland’s Year of Stories, ‘Stories, Sessions, and Sails’ will be programmed in partnership with the Elphinstone Institute.

 

Sailing Trips

Sing along with a sea shanty. Hear about supernatural encounters and creatures at sea. Find out about the people and places that populate the Firth’s rich maritime history.

‘Stories, Sessions, and Sails’ is a voyage of discovery of the Moray Firth, its communities, myths, and legends told through our rich oral traditions.

Daily at 10am & 2pm. £80. 3 hour duration. Includes soup and a dram. Departing: Buckie Harbour.

 

Supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Stories 2022. Associated Seafoods is delighted to support the Lady of Avenel at the 4th Findhorn Bay Festival.
