We’ve been working on this solidly for a week, ensuring we have all the dates available, and that the grounds will be ready in time for the first tours in early April. We’re now set, and you can book tours from this site, here.
Of course the tours, and the fact that we live onsite distinguish the Scottish Laird scheme from all the rest. Not only are we a Scottish company, based in Scotland with the intention of providing a Scottish destination of quality, but we meet and greet our Lairds and Ladies whether or no they book a tour.
The tour itself is an hour long walk around the grounds with myself, Charles Dixon-Spain, telling the story both of the site, and the tale of how we came to be involved. You’ll see the Thomas Teford-designed bridge, the Victorian Path Network, the Castle and the various exotic trees and shrubs planted by the Fletchers (the original owners) in two and a half centuries of occupation.
You’ll need wellies or stout walking boots, wet weather gear (it is Argyll afterall), and a camera.
