“The Burning of the Clavie festival takes place at Doorie Hill. The ceremony – during which a clavie, a barrel packed with tar soaked sticks fixed on the top of a pole, is set alight – dates to the 1750s when the Julian calendar was reformed in Britain. The ritual is believed to bring good luck for the coming year.”
