Southern Upland Partnership
Work with local businesses and heritage site managers to develop a range of local activities that will both help local people better understand local heritage and also provide new ‘experiential’ attractions for visitors. This project will identify a number of artisans such as craft workers, artists, wildlife guides, archaeologists, historians and local food & drink manufacturers, who will be supported in developing a range of authentic taster sessions within the Galloway Glens relating to their speciality. These could include a half day on cheese making, learn to drystone-dyke, make a willow basket etc. They will be packaged into ‘heritage activity weekends’.
