New Culbin exhibition explores the history of the village swallowed by sand

A website and exhibition is being set up to tell the story of Culbin.

In 1694, the Great Sand Drift swallowed up the village of Culbin, on the Moray Firth coast. While there are scientific and natural explanations for the disappearance of the village, stories, myths and legends about the people, land, and events abound.

Researchers at the School of Creative and Cultural Business at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, alongside Moray Council Libraries and Information Services, are seeking personal stories about Culbin to add to an exhibition which starts on 19 February.

The team are seeking personal stories for the exhibition – a tale handed down through generations, or childhood memories from visiting the sands.
