Wednesday 31st May  – Saturday 29th July , 2017

Elgin Museum

New Exhibition – Lost in Nature

Annette M. Purdie: Lost in Nature – The influence of the natural world constantly drives the direction of the work of Annette M. Purdie. Areas of Scotland and Yorkshire, where the artist previously lived, and memories from travel elsewhere in the world, evoke an abundance of inspiration. Adding a certain amount of imagination also provides further scope for interpretation of the above in sometimes a more impressionistic, rather than figurative way.

Free entry – donations welcome!

Tuesday 20th, Friday 23rd & Tuesday 27th June, 2017

1.00pm – 2.00pm, Nelson’s Tower, Cluny Hill, Grant Park, Forres

Cluny Hill Dig Guided Tours

Your chance to visit an archaeological excavation, as specialists search for evidence on the past of this intriguing site – could it be a “lost” hillfort?

Please note: The tour is suitable for people of all ages but please be prepared for very uneven terrain & a steep walk, which may be unsuitable for some; sturdy, waterproof shoes are advised.

The start and end point for tours will be at Nelson’s Tower.

Free event – no booking required! Contact for more information.

Elgin Museum is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Cluny Hill Dig as part of our HLF-funded programme of activities and events in this the Year of History, Heritage & Archaeology.
