Forres which has a rich and colourful history is to get its own walking app to help people step back in time and discover its past.

We, the organisers of the European Pipe Band Championships, Piping at Forres, sponsored by Benromach Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky have commissioned the app to help people explore the heritage of the town and its people, and are seeking help from the public to come forward with fascinating facts and stories.

The app will be launched to coincide with this year’s event on 24 June 2017. The app will continue to be useful to locals and visitors after the event by leaving a resource available into the future.

Piping At Forres is celebrating the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017 and the app will fittingly feature some of the Forres’ standout landmarks, such as the tallest Pictish carved stone in the country, and many sites linked to King Macbeth, who ruled over the town in the 11th century.
