The team at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate have a fantastic line-up of Ranger events throughout May and June for all the family to enjoy.

Exciting events include a ‘Teddy Bear Picnic’ where parents, little ones and their favourite teddies are invited to join the Rangers for a fun afternoon on Sunday 26 May. For just £2 per child, visitors can enjoy fun games, stories, music and, of course, a picnic in the picturesque grounds of Drumlanrig from 11am-1pm. Or on Sunday 2 June visitors are invited to see the world through the eyes of a bug at the ‘Life in the Undergrowth’ event at no additional cost.

For older children and inquisitive adults alike, Drumlanrig’s Rangers will host a ‘Moth Morning’ on Sunday 30 June – a relaxed morning investigating the creatures caught overnight in the moth trap followed by tea, coffee and pastries. Booking is essential and costs £2.50 per person.

The team at Drumlanrig also provide self-guided walking events throughout the visitor season, with intriguing and mystical themes including ‘Pixies and Fairies’, ‘Heroes and Villains’ and ‘Princes and Princesses’. Budding explorers can set off on a quest through the Estate anytime between 11am-4pm by following an activity sheet available from the castle shop for just 30p each.

Richard Clarke, Countryside Ranger at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate, said: “Our grounds, gardens and woodlands are home to lots of wildlife and we hope that our sessions will provide a fun and educational opportunity for visitors.”
