Susan Holoran, Visitor Experience Officer with CDT, is delighted to announce that the Visitor Experience at Cultybraggan Camp will be open to visitors from Saturday 16 April. The museum has been refreshed with many new artefacts, video interpretation and storyboards and one of the Nissen huts will recreate camp life for PoWs and British military personnel. Second World War activities for schools are being developed and we intend to expand the museum to interpret the history of Comrie through the ages starting with the Picts and the Romans. We are also looking forward to hosting exciting and varied events, the first being a book signing and talk about Herbert Sulzbach: if you don’t know of this great man and his work in Comrie, come along to the Rural Hall at 7:30pm on 15th May.
I am looking for enthusiastic and friendly volunteers to help deliver experiences that will delight our visitors and develop our plans for the future. You’ll meet new and interesting people and contribute towards preserving this unique and important part of Scotland’s heritage.
There are plenty of activities to get involved in: engaging with visitors and school groups, helping in the shop, creating attractive outdoor spaces and you could even become a re-enactor! So, if you would like to share your Make-do-and Mend skills, you are not afraid of a till or just like telling stories, I’d love to hear from you. The amount of time our volunteers spend with us depends entirely on what suits them. To find out more, please get in touch with me at or call 01764 670769
Hope to hear from you.
Best wishes
