We are open every day during Heritage Week and have the following events planned:

Saturday 20th of August and Sunday 21st of August: Graveyard tour with Amanda Pitcairn

“The tour consists of a walk through the woods to the graveyard where I will give you a short talk about some of the people who are interred there.  On the way I shall regale you with some interesting facts stories and legends about the estate and the people who lived here.   On the way back we can complete the loop by walking alongside the mountain river which is a grassy and slightly rougher walk than the way we get to the graveyard, or we can retrace our steps and return the same way we came.  Which ever, we can decide after the grave yard section of the tour.”

Time:2pm and 3.30pm
