George Angus gave us a very clear picture of the running of the farm in the early years and his management now for the National Trust.
The future is exciting!!
We were all impressed by the slate roofs quarried not too far away. Recent repairs indoors to keep the weather out
Barley, wheat and beans still grown for feed.
The remains of the old stud farm fencing of Lady Mairi Bury's day (a birthday present from her dad)and the area where she landed her plane.
Saturday was a much better day to visit the garden and see what else was going on. The colours were still vibrant despite Autumn beginning.
were on site and it was lovely to see them at work. They made some beautiful pieces of art out of the floor tiles than were removed from central hall.
I was fascinated in the work involved in making the plate used to print this picture of the Mairi garden. I can't begin to imagine the time it takes to get it just right.
It was also good to see screen printing in process something I am completely unfamiliar with and may want to play with in the future with textiles.
