This weekend from 1pm on Saturday and Sunday a team of volunteers will be up at the Camp and could use some help cleaning out some of the huts. Just come along with a brush & shovel, a mop & bucket or just bring yourself and ask what needs done…
The March to Cultybraggan Camp will be an exciting and thought-provoking day which will combine living history and heritage activities with information and discussion around the present day activities at the Camp. The day will kick off with a dramatic re-enactment of German PoWs arriving in Comrie and marching up to the camp, just how some of Comrie’s long-term residents remember. Activities going on throughout the day are suitable for all ages; from playing 1940s games and finding out how local children contributed to Comrie’s home front to learning more about the lifestyles of German soldiers in the field and as prisoners at Cultybraggan. Discover how local groups are using Cultybraggan today as a place to grow food, do business and have fun or find out what Comrie Heritage Group is doing to preserve and promote the camp’s unique heritage and see how you can get involved. Funds raised on the day will go towards the creation of a small museum and information centre which will tell the fascinating story of Cultybraggan Camp and it’s long-standing relationship with Comrie village. The Open Day is your chance to reconnect with the camp and reminisce, or to explore the site and discover its potential. We would love for the event to serve as a reminder of the fact that Cultybraggan Camp belongs to all of us and presents many exciting possibilities for the future of our community!This event is part of a wide range of events which form Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust’s Archaeology Month 2013. This offers a packed programme of key events, guided walks, talks and demonstrations featuring the rich archaeology of the area.
