Historic Trees of Abercairny Estate
Join forester Syd House MBE on an exclusive walk through the extensive grounds of Abercairny estate which has been owned by the same family since the 13th C. The estate and house gardens are home to many unique tree varieties, many of which have a place in local history. Syd House will describe the history of tree planting on large estates, different tree species and the important links with the Scottish botanist and plant hunter David Douglas who was born in Scone near Perth in 1799.
The attached Youtube link gives an introduction to Abercairny and what the walk will feature. https://youtu.be/pzCQFuieeIc
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
