A lovely walk at any time of year with plenty of space for dogs, children, picnics and bird watching. The Hall is also lovely but check opening times. Something for everyone and fabulous for children during tge Easter Egg hunt.

Property of the Scottisch trust. The house was closed (off season) but the grounds are lovely. Take the hill walk for a stunning 360 view over the valley. It is a bit strenuous bit well worth the effort!
