Ericht Memories

We’re starting to collect photos and stories from people of all ages, and family stories too, about memories of the River Ericht – and anywhere else in the catchment as well, have a look at the map below. Do you have a favourite place, or times spent fishing, wild swimming, bird watching, picnicking, reflecting or just walking by the river? If so we would love to collect and document them. We’ll keep the call open until the Spring of 2024 and then we’ll look at turning all the memories into a booklet and we’ll organise some events and activities about them as well.

Please use the form at the end of this page to upload your text and any photos you have.
