Keen to listen to stories about the maiden voyage of Britain’s first steamboat?
Huddle around the boat itself to hear tales the brave Red Comyn, who lived at Dalswinton and was killed by Robert the Bruce in 1306. Or step back in time and hear tales about Romans who encamped upon the hills nearby. Soak in the garden's history and stand in awe at the large man made loch with island folly. Join Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and The Scottish International Storytelling Festival in “Growing Stories”. A fun packed way to explore some of Scotland’s gardens. See gardens with new eyes once you hear stories, from local storytellers, about their creation, history and interaction with the environment. For more information see Scotland’s Gardens Scheme website.
Over half of the gardens are taking part to support open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
