Join the crew and build a 4-6 seater coracle to be part of the ATLAS Bàta Brèagha event on 10 Sept in Portree bay.

Taking the Spey coracle as her inspiration Heather Clyne will lead this workshop building a four-six  seater coracle. It will take place over a week in the grounds of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and will become part of the ATLAS Bàta Brèagha event in Portree bay on September 10 as part of a gathering of coracles and other bonnie boats.
