Visit to Glamis

On Friday, members of the gardening group set out to Glamis castle for a much deserved day out. Having spent an inordinate number of hours on our own gardens and heritage areas this year it was refreshing and inspiring to see the wonderful work carried out at Glamis. As one of our volunteers, Sandie, also works in the castle gardens we were treated to a guided tour and a look at some of the areas not normally seen by the public. It was a real privilege to see the late Queen Mother's garden and the beautiful Italian gardens. Also the old walled garden and the ancient apple trees named after local places, the castle and people. After a lovely lunch we rounded off the day with a tour of the castle itself, led by one of the well informed guides who was extremely interesting and engaging. A lovely day with many special memories.
