"The beautiful town of Grantown on Spey in the Highlands of Scotland will be 250 years old in June 2015. We will be celebrating its history, and its present in June 2015 with a series of exciting events in the town square..." There is a facebook page set up by the Grantown community to focus on this year's forthcoming celebrations.
Any excuse coming up for Nairn to have a bit of a party? How about the world orienteering championships? There is an opening ceremony on Saturday August 1st in Nairn starting at 1645. The town will be busy - that might be a good day for anyone planning a summer event to put it on and benefit from the proximity of such a prominent world championship?
