Did you know that a witch named Kate McNiven was burned to death by a mob in Crieff? Had you heard that there is a cave somewhere on Kinnoull Hill called the Dragon’s Hole? And what about the one about Lawer’s village, an abandoned hamlet on Loch Tay? We heard that a lady seer once predicted the future there!
Perth and Kinross has a rich tradition in stories, tales and folklore, and Perth Museum and Art Gallery will be home to a new and exciting exhibition this Spring, Only in Whispers – The Myths and Legends of Perthshire. This innovative exhibition is based on stories, folklore, and local urban myths. It uses theatrical methods to bring these stories to life, creating an unforgettable interactive experience unlike anything seen before at Perth Museum and Art Gallery!
The exhibition, in collaboration with Stage Designer, Becky Minto and Pitlochry Festival Theatre, will be looking at the strange stories passed down through the generations; the myths, the legends and how well we really know them.
We’ve been overwhelmed with the number of entries we’ve received for our call out for your myths and legends. We’ll be reviewing them very soon!
This experience is aimed at visitors aged 8 and above, as some content may be unsuitable for our younger guests.
Advance booking is strongly recommended as our exhibitions and events prove very popular and advance availability can sell-out. You can purchase tickets for Only in Whispers in advance online.
