St Mary’s Sunday 30th July

This Sunday we are joined by the Manchester Church Lads and Gilrs Brigade for the Annual Camp Service. This year a record number of young people are staying at Dounans.

 

The Callander and Trossachs Summer Fest runs in Callander from the 16th to the 30th July with a variety of daily activates. Brochures are available at St Andrews

 

The Linkage Annual Trip

This will be held on Monday 31st July with the destination being Callander House Falkirk. Callendar House dates from the 14th century but was rebuilt in the 19th in French chateau style fused with Scots Baronial. It is set in the nationally important historic designed landscape of Callendar Park, which contains a section of the Antonine Wall World Heritage Site. The estate was originally one of the seats of the Thanes of Callander (note spelling) who also had a castle close to St Kessog’s Manse by the river Teith in our Callander.

The House’s permanent displays are ‘The Story of Callendar House (from the 11th to the 19th century)’, ‘ The Antonine Wall: Rome’s Northern Frontier’ and ‘Falkirk: Crucible of Revolution 1750-1850’ . When we visit there will be a temporary exhibition on the Romans and one called ‘Workhorse: the Clydesdales of Flanders Moss’ of photographs by Michael Prince.

In the restored 1825 Kitchen, costumed interpreters create an exciting interactive experience with samples of early 19th century food and stories of working life in a large household.

There is a tea room and all floors are accessible by lift.

We leave Callander at 10.00 and will return no later than 16.30. Cost £10.00 payable in advance to Hilary Gunkel mail@hilarygunkel.co.uk 01877 330798
