Our Story

  • 18 May 2014 12-4pm

Dig out your wellies for a day out on the farm celebrating the amazing culture of North East Scotland. Pull up a hay bail to hear the special storytelling sessions in the courtyard, get vocal in the bothy ballad sing-a-long or add yourself to the archives by recording your own anecdotes, tall tales and fascinating facts. Then top it all off by getting up close and personal with the magnificent Clydesdale horses from Strathorn Farm Stables, or just sit back and relax as they take you on a leisurely dray ride around the park. Ahh, 'tis a farmer's life for us!
