Virtual Charity Open Day

August 2nd, 2020 - August 2nd, 2020

For many years we have held an open day on the first Sunday of August to help raise money for the charity Scotland's Garden Scheme. Sadly we have had to cancel this year but we invite you to visit our website, Facebook or Instagram pages to watch a video that we we have put together from previous years, new footage from the garden and a welcome tune from the top of the castle keep from Morrison's Academy's Pipe Major. Put a date in your diary for next year. A great family day out. Pipe band, brass band, Scottish country dancing, dog handling, classic cars, tea tent , stalls and more.
