Drummond Castle, ancient trees and a picnic for Volunteers’ Week
As an opportunity to thank our Scotland volunteers in Volunteers’ Week we ran an ancient tree recording day at Drummond Castle near Comrie in Perthshire.
23 volunteers attended and it was a real treat of a day; massive oaks, Sequoias and sweet chestnuts, as well as the stunning gardens! We recorded well over one hundred trees for the Ancient Tree Inventory.
The photos tell the story best, so here are some of the many taken on the day!
The weather was kind with sunshine and only a couple of showers, and after all the ground covered in the parkland the wonderful picnic was very welcome indeed!
This event was a repeat of last year’s, and there are still plenty of trees to record there so look out for ‘Drummond 3’ in 2020!
