Dance Information

The River Findhorn is one of the longest rivers in Scotland.

Located in the north east, it flows into the Moray Firth on the north coast and it has one of the largest non-firth estuaries in Scotland.

The 'Muckle Spate' ('Large Flood') on August 4th 1829 was the most extreme historic flood recorded in Scotland. The River Findhorn was one of the rivers most severely affected.
