Forres Heritage Trust Limited

The illumination of the Tolbooth, Merkat Cross and Nelson’s Tower in Forres have thoroughly put each of these buildings on the map. The ‘state of the art’ lighting equipment installed will enable the colour scheme of each building to be changed to reflect such events as Remembrance Day, McMillan Cancer Day, Christmas etc. The hope is to fire the imagination of the population and get them to visit the buildings, this in turn producing activities which are both educational as well as family orientated. It is hoped the fact the buildings are illuminated will encourage people to visit Forres and that an economic benefit will be derived by local businesses.
