|Description || The Burning of the Clavie|
Remnant of an ancient, Pagan fire festival, carried out on the old new year date of what is now 11th January. The burning Clavie, bestowing luck to all who scavenge a remnant of the charred wood, is paraded through the streets of Burghead, before being mounted upon the Doorie Hill, the best preserved outer defence rampart of the PICTISH FORT OF BURGHEAD, - The largest Pictish fort known in Scotland.
