The warm sunny days are perfect for making the most of the scent-filled cottage gardens. As the roses come into bloom and BBQs are lit, prepare for summer! Fine June days are perfect for drying the sheep as we start shearing and packing the wool on the farm this month.

Festivals

All events and festivals are cancelled June 2020

The Royal Highland Show is a real highlight this month. We love visiting the shows huge cattle shed to meet the best of all breeds as well as the fluffy Highland favourites. Next door you can watch the Scottish clydesdale horses, such gentle giants, being prepared for the ring and pulling their brewers dray in teams of six.

Children will love the Shetland ponies and the cheeky goats who thrive on the attention and the odd nibble of clothing.

Celebrate

Fathers Day | 21st June 2020

How about booking yourselves in to Craft Beer Kitchen. Stewarts Brewing has long invited the public in to try their hand at crafting the perfect pint. With expert guidance you can spend the day brewing your very own bespoke beer. If staying at Eastside the brewery are more than happy to send the beer on (within the UK) when it's ready. Not a bad holiday souvenir!
