Comrie Flambeaux

Comrie’s Famous Flambeaux Event

Whilst the origins of this ancient custom are lost in the mists of time, the tradition is maintained by local voluntary effort. Each Hogmanay as midnight is announced by the bells of Big Ben the Flambeaux are lit. The torches, consisting of long thick birch poles with tarred rags tightly bound to the tops, are paraded around the village preceeded by the pipe band and followed by a fancy dress parade.

Once the procession returns to Melville Square prizes are presented to the best Fancy Dress competitors and then the torches are cast over the Dalginross Bridge into the waters of the River Earn. This is supposed to signify the casting out of evil spirits.

Many of the villagers follow this on with the custom of ‘First Footing’ which usually involves a dfferent type of spirit entirely!

Programme 2017
6.30 Children’s Fancy Dress Parade at the White Church
7.15’ish Fireworks at the Boulevard
Midnight Flambeaux Parade

The Flambeaux event this year will be more or less as it was last year ie children’s fancy dress parade in the White Church at 6.30. There will be a fireworks display again at the Boulevard just after the children’s parade which will be about 7.15pm

Thereafter the main parade will commence with the lighting of the Flambeaux at midnight and setting off from Melville Square on the usual route round the village.

We encourage folks to dress up to join the parade with topical Fancy Dress and small scale floats or carrying items to show off their fancy dress.

This event has changed little for as long as anyone can remember. There have been small changes due policing and health and safety issues and also the fireworks are relatively new, but we do try to keep it as traditional as possible.

The Flambeaux Committee hope this is of help to you and that you will be joining with us in the Hogmanay celebrations.

Emily’s Wild Adventures

Emily Wild Adventures is me Emily Greaves

I am a lover of the great outdoors, wild adventures, my campervan called Hamish and most importantly my family. There is nothing better in life than all four of us climbing into the van and heading off into the hills for some outdoor fun.

I have expert knowledge of the hills, glens and lochs surrounding Comrie. I know secret wild camping spots, hidden trails over easy or more technical terrain. I can take you where you will see no sign of human habitation, where you can spot incredible wildlife.

Cycling: Guided mountain, road or touring rides. These can be anything from 1hr to full day rides. I have expert knowledge of Strathearn’s on and off-road routes for all abilities.

Walking: Anything from climbing your first Munro to a more gentle stroll to visit some picturesque waterfalls, I can tailor the walk to your needs.

Running: If you are keen to start trail or hill running then I have more than likely run where you would like to go. I would happily advise you great off road running routes, print you a map and off you go or can lead you on a wild run.
