Today, the group worked with pine cones collected from the grounds of the Blair Atholl Estate.  They up-cycled these to make Christmas decorations, and very nice they were too!     

Blair Castle is at the hub of a breathtaking historic landscape most of which was laid out in the 18th century and features a magnificent walled garden, a peaceful wooded grove, a ruined kirk, a red deer park and a whimsical gothic folly. Colourful peacocks roam the grounds, Highland cattle graze in fields nearby and the native red squirrel can often be spotted amongst the branches. Children will also enjoy the castle’s woodland adventure playground.
