Friday 27th May

The weather has been quite changeable here over the last few weeks from wet to dry, windy to calm. In other words it has been typical Scottish weather. The rain, although great for some wildlife, was not appreciated by all especially our resident red squirrel who visits the feeder just outside the office. It was seen huddled up in the feeder box trying to escape the rain and get some grub at the same time. It is amazing how small a space squirrels can squeeze into and still have room to nibble away at the nuts below. Well that just goes to show that you can’t say you never see anything interesting in the rain.

The parade day for the private army at Atholl Estates is being held tomorrow at Blair Castle at 2:40 pm with a talk beforehand at 11 am in the castle ballroom and then the Highland Games will take place on Sunday between 10 am and 4:30 pm. Come along to witness some caber tossing and wrestling, listen to the pipers competing with each other join in the tug of war. If you have the weekend off then why not spend it at Blair Atholl to join in the fun events.
