Tuesday 24th - Saddell Day

Morning

 

The Saddell people will wake up and make breakfast, before having the morning free to wander around the Estate.
All houses are open this morning, so do take the opportunity to visit your neighbours in Saddell Castle (hosts Julia and Stephen Hart),
Saddell House (host Simon Hedges), the Lodge, Shore Cottage, and Ferryman's Cottage.
Take the chance to wander along the shore to the little bothy of Port-Na-Gael at the other end of the bay.

Wander out a little further afield, by walking up the driveway under the canopy of trees, and
along the little stream, to the gates of the estate, and over the road to the graveyard and ruins of Saddell Abbey.

People staying at Carradale will need to make their own way to Saddell if they wish to enjoy the estate,
visit the dwellings, and have lunch. The cost of the events arranged this day is included in the delegate fee,
with the exception of the Distillery Tour and Whisky Tasting.
