Memorable stories wanted for community project

Scottish Dolphin Centre

To celebrate Scotland’s Year of Stories in 2022, Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s Scottish Dolphin Centre is encouraging the local community and visitors to share their stories about Spey Bay.

The themed year has been designated by Visit Scotland and aims to showcase stories inspired by, created, or written in Scotland.

“We would love to hear from anyone who has memorable stories to tell about beautiful Spey Bay. We know there is so much to tell here, from magical dolphin encounters, the fascinating salmon fishing heritage of Tugnet and special family memories for so many people who have visited the area over the years.

“Our visitors regularly tell us about their memories of sitting on Icehouse Hill, watching the sea and looking out for osprey or dolphin fins. Others remember family members working on the nets long before the Dolphin Centre existed. We hope to capture some of these stories and share them with WDC’s supporters and other visitors.” Alison Rose, Scottish Dolphin Centre manager.

One of our first entries has come from previous WDC volunteer Thomas Plant, who has sent in a poem entitled Spey Bay Memories, that encapsulates the wonderful variety of wildlife that can be spotted in Spey Bay throughout the year.

The stories will be collated and shared in the Scottish Dolphin Centre exhibition, on our website and on social media. Stories should be 150-300 words long, or could be told in another form such as poetry, video, music, or anything creative.
Submissions can be sent by email to [email protected] or by post to Scottish Dolphin Centre, Spey Bay, Moray, IV32 7PJ.

The deadline for stories is 15th September 2022 but stories will be featured all through the summer, so please don’t wait!
