Calling Exhibitors: Local Makers, Producers and Crafters

Logie Steading Christmas Mini Markets are back for 2023!

If you are a local grower, producer or maker of food, crafts or artisan products and you’d like to exhibit at one of the Mini Markets this festive season – we’d love to hear from you! Located just 6 miles outside Forres in the beautiful Findhorn Valley, Logie Steading is already home to a number of producers and retailers. Our Mini Markets offer other exhibitors the opportunity to come and join us for the day.

Please apply via our online booking form – link below. But first, there are some important details to make you aware of. 

Markets will take place on:

  • Saturday 25th November
  • Saturday 2nd December (Gazebo pitches available)*
  • Saturday 9th December (Gazebo pitches available)*

The markets will take a similar form to previous Mini Markets and the Steading will look suitable festive for the season. All market locations will be clearly sign posted. The image below hopefully gives an idea of the different spots on offer.

Available locations are:

  • The Courtyard – these pitches are under the Bookshop lean to which means they are outside, but under cover. Marked in red on the map. 
  • The Long Room – these pitches are indoors. Marked in purple on the map. 
  • The old Whisky and Wine Shop – these pitches are indoors. Marked in purple on the map.

We may be able to offer Gazebo spaces near the car parking area. The decision to do so will depend on the number of those interested. If you are interested in a gazebo space, please specify in your application form.

Please note:

  • *If you apply for a date and location that is already fully booked, you will be offered an alternative but can be added to a waiting list for your originally applied for date and location. Cancellations do happen so it’s worth getting on the waiting list!
  • You will need to complete a new online form for each market you would like to apply to attend. 
  • Spaces are limited and allocated by the Estate, so long as applicants meet the criteria. Please do apply early – we will do our best to respond to your preferences.
  • Markets run from 1000 – 1600 with exhibitors expected to be ready to open by 0930 on the day, and not pack up their stand before 1600.
  • All stalls will be charged at £40 per pitch, inclusive of VAT.
  • We have a limited number of tables for hire, charged at £10 for the day. These are offered on a first come first serve basis. 
  • We can offer electrical hook up for most of the stall locations, charged at £10 for the day. This is offered on a first come first serve basis.

Terms & Conditions for fishing on Logie Estate

  1. Fishing on the river is restricted to 2 rods per beat and is to be by fly only. All fishing is from the right bank. By arrangement with the neighbouring estate there is no left bank fishing on the Relugas Middle and Top beats.
  2. The fishing is split into two 2 rod beats, Logie and Relugas, with Relugas sub divided into Middle and Top.  Beats can be taken together or separately. Logie is fished Monday to Saturday, Relugas Middle on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Relugas Top on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Beats change at midnight.
  3. Fishermen must contact Logie Estate office on 01309 611300 a day or so before arrival to organise being shown onto the river. A map of pools, beats and access routes will be provided.
  4. Bio-security is important to the future of the river and anglers are asked to observe protection measures. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Conservation Code will be strictly observed. To summarise: All fish caught up to 14th May inclusive must be released. From 15th May, all salmon over 9 lbs / 4 kg / 28 inches / 72 cm are to be returned.  Below that measurement at least 70% of salmon and 50% of grilse caught should be released and a maximum of 1 salmon and / or 2 grilse per rod per week may be retained. In September all fish are to be returned. No gaffs or tailers are allowed.
  5. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Bio-security measures will be strictly observed and all fishermen in the party must sign the Bio-security Declaration. (Also available at http://www.fnlft.org.uk/downloads/)
  6. The Estate recommends that barbless hooks are used, fishermen are in possession of a disgorger and that knotless nets are used. All possible care should be taken when returning fish to the river, they should be handled as little, and gently, as possible and should not be removed from the water.
  7. The catch should be reported at the end of each day of fishing to Logie Estate Office on 01309 611300. If the office is closed, please leave a message on the answering machine with the date, weight and pool. Please also report a nil catch day.
  8. Dogs are allowed on the river but must be kept strictly under control at all times. The Estate reserves the right to ask tenants to remove dogs if they are considered to be out of control.
  9. Rod, line and fly size are dependent on prevailing weather and water conditions and personal choice. In general, maximum rod length needed is 13ft with a size 8 or 9 line, usually floating. Fly sizes range from 6 – 8 in the spring down to 12 or less in summer low water.
  10. Safety must be considered at all times. All beats have a variety of pools with some suitable for most heights of water. Little wading is necessary and river paths are good however the fishing is within the Findhorn gorge, access to some of the pools is quite steep and a degree of rock scrambling is often necessary when playing and landing fish. Please be aware that a reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required. A buoyancy aid for each rod is provided and should be collected from Logie Estate Office on arrival, and returned to the Estate Office (or to the outbuilding opposite if office is closed) on departure. Logie Estate strongly recommends that buoyancy aids are worn when fishing and not doing so is entirely at fishermen’s own risk. Please pay attention at all times, avoid slips and falls, wear appropriate footwear, look out for overhead electricity lines, watch the weather and pay attention to livestock. Take extra care if fishing alone.
  11. Anglers need to supply or hire their own equipment (except buoyancy aids, which are provided).
  12. Ghillieing/tuition is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. A half day ghillieing/tuition is approx. 3 hours, full day approx. 6 hours. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. Rates do not include discretionary tips.
  13. Rod, Reel & Line hire is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. A rod, reel and line set is for one person and is subject to a fully refundable damage deposit of £100.
  14. Aside from fishermen, others, including rafters and kayakers, enjoy this stretch of river and mutual respect and consideration is expected.
  15. Bookings are confirmed when initial payment is received. Subsequent changes in dates or number or rods are entirely subject to the Estate’s discretion and to availability. Change of dates, if accepted, incur an administration fee. In the event of a cancellation the tenant must advise Logie Estate immediately, whereupon Logie will endeavour to re-let. If a new tenant can be found the deposit will be returned less any expenses incurred for advertising, office costs, etc., and less any shortfalls in discounted list price. Until such time as a vacancy has been re-let the hirer is responsible for making any further payment by the due dates. Failure to do so may mean that the hirer forfeits any refund if the dates are re-let. If it is not possible to re-let, all payments are still payable by the due date(s). It is unlikely that a refund can be made for a late cancellation. Logie Estate recommends that fishermen take out relevant cancellation insurance.
  16. Subletting fishing is only allowed with Logie Estate’s permission.
  17. Logie Estate reserves the right to immediately withdraw fishing without compensation from anyone who breaks these or associated conditions, or flouts normal standards of behaviour or fishing etiquette.
