Explore the Dava Moor
Sun, 18 June 2023 @ 10:30 - 14:00
The Dava Moor, a wild, bleak or romantic spot north of Grantown. Walk with John as he reveals the history, legends, placenames and former settlements of a previous time.
Explore the Dava Moor on this walk from the Jesus Saves stone following estate tracks to former hill farms dotted across the moor.
John will recount tales of past lives on the moor, the folklore, placenames and the landscape.
Part of the route will retrace that which John took Cameron McNeish on in an episode of Roads Less Travelled for the BBC Scotland’s Adventure Show.
John Halliday is a local Scottish Tourist Guides Association Green Badge guide for the Northern Highlands. Local to Grantown, his family have lived in the area for centuries. He regularly leads walks in and around Grantown and has written three books on Strathspey placenames, myths and legends.
