tree_id_walkKillearn Glen is a delightful spot on the edge of the village that has been in existence as a wood for many years, with a varied mix of native & non-native trees for us to identify. Our guide for the afternoon is Paul of Green Aspirations Scotland, and he will talk us through the woods’ history (it dates back to the earliest maps), the relationship between natural and designed landscape, whilst highlighting uses of the different tree species. There is no charge, but please use the booking form (here) to confirm your place.

Meet at 2pm (Tuesday 9th September 2014) at the entrance to Killearn Glen on Beech Drive. Street parking available, or use car parking in the centre of village.

Good morning everybody. We are very sad to have to let you know that Whitleys’ in the Village Coffee Shop is now closed. We would like to thank you all for your support over the past year.

This is very sad news indeed. Guess they, did not get the support they needed from the village…
