From exciting animal shows in the arena to traditional games and crafts, there's plenty to enjoy at this big day out.
Join us for a celebration of all things rural. Get up close to farmyard favourites, watch exciting pig races and experience a variety of country skills and traditional crafts.
Our 1950s working farm will come to life with a variety of country skills and traditional crafts, including milking, farrier demonstrations, sheepdog trials and stock judging. Celebrate local Scottish produce in our new food and drink marquee, and enjoy tastings and talks in the museum.
