Amber Autumn Picnic

This is something new for 2015!

Who would be crazy enough to organise an outside picnic in the autumn in Scotland? Well...we are!

Following the judging of the Decorated Wheelbarrow Parade, which happens in Stanley Hill this year (as The Cross in Dunkeld was getting a bit too crowded) we are encouraging everyone to wear their wellies and warm coats and bring a big picnic and a rug ...and enjoy an afternoon of music with Dougie MacLean, Buddy MacDonald and Dallahan in a truly beautiful setting!

This event is organised in conjunction with The National Trust for Scotland. The Clanrannald Medieval Village, the pipe band, an outdoor music stage and the Antonine Guard (Roman soldiers!) plus a storytelling tent for kids and some other displays ... should make for a truly relaxing and fun afternoon for all the family.

We're encouraging businesses in Dunkeld to come up with some great picnic ideas to pick-up and take to Stanley Hill...or you can pack your own picnic at home and bring it along to enjoy!

There will be a Storytelling for the Children with the entertaining and engaging Calum  Lykan from 2.3pm in the Guide Dogs tent.

This is a FREE we're hoping for lots of folk..whatever the weather you'll be in good company. Come prepared for rain and you might just get a nice surprise!

Some photos to get you in the mood!
