Thursday, 03 August 2017

Those looking for action-packed activities for children and adults during the summer holidays need look no further than Bowhill House.

The Estate’s Holiday Ranger Club takes place two days per week until 17 August from 11am to 1pm (£5 per child).

Suitable for children aged six and over, the club provides the opportunity to take part in a variety of tasks including den building, pond dipping, woodland art, bushcraft and fire lighting.

The Saturday Ranger Club also offers a selection of fantastic activities weekly at 1.30pm throughout the holidays until September.

Younger visitors can enjoy Nutty’s Little Squirrels sessions which take place each Friday at 2pm until September (£3 per child). Activities include explorer walks, storytelling, woodland crafts and wilderness games.

Adults looking for a fun summer activity can don their running shoes and Hawaiian shirts for the Estate’s Summer Holiday Fun Run.

The Themed 5k and one mile runs take place on 12 August (11am, £5 per person) and must be booked by 5 August.

Rory Powell, Countryside Learning and Engagement Ranger at Bowhill, said: “Our Holiday and Saturday Ranger Clubs offer children the opportunity to enjoy and explore the Estate while taking part in fun and educational activities.

“Nutty’s Little Squirrels sessions are also a fantastic option for younger tots who want to have some woodland fun too.

“Our Ranger-led workshops are a superb way to keep children entertained throughout the school holidays. Make sure you book your spot now!”

Bowhill’s Ranger activities are delivered with the support of SNH (Scottish Natural Heritage) funding.
