Your Tay Your Adventure
Looking for something different? Then come and explore the Tay Landscape.
Bee happy | come scrumping | make a bird a home | glorious mud | get intimate with your ancestors!
HISTORY, ENVIRONMENT, CONSERVATION, HERITAGE & CRAFT
These are the main themes of the Tay Landscape Partnership (TayLP), an exciting new 4 year project celebrating the landscapes of where the Rivers Tay and Earn meet. The TayLP is offering exciting new opportunities to get involved in local projects which will put the Tay on the map whilst giving you a fun day out meeting new people and learning new skills and knowledge about where you live. Did you know for example there was once a Royal Pictish site in the landscape, in the Carse of Gowrie there are buildings made out of mud or that we have fruit trees 800 years old and still laden with fruit?
The Tay Landscape stretches from Newburgh on the south side of the Tay Estuary around to Perth and along the Carse to Dundee. The project, a £2.6 million initiative is principally funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, will enable locals and visitors to reconnect with the natural, built and cultural heritage of the area. This will be accomplished through 29 individual projects which will:
- conserve, restore and improve access to a range of natural and historic features
- encourage and support a greater diversity and quantity of people to learn about and more actively participate in their landscape and its heritage
- provide training opportunities for people in local, traditional skills
- link with broader public and private investment in Dundee, Perth and Fife, to support sustainable economic development
We look forward to meeting people throughout the project at our many events. This is Your Tay Your Adventure…be part of it.
