Winter Talk – The Brahan Seer Legend

January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The ‘Brahan Seer Legend and the Enduring Power of Prophecy’.

Join the Forres Heritage Trust at the Tolbooth for the first of four Winter Talks.

Dr Alex Sutherland will tell the tale of the The Brahan Seer, a legendary figure famous for his gift of second sight.

He is known throughout Scotland and the Scottish Diaspora; indeed, anywhere there is an interest in looking into the future.

Over time, from the seventeenth century to the present, numerous prophecies have been attributed to the Brahan Seer.

The prophecies describe the changes – some trivial, some momentous – to Scottish Highland culture and society. These, in turn, shaped the legend’s development during this period.

COST: £5 including refreshments. Tickets are available from the Forres Area Credit Union premises at 53 High Street from January 9.
