Live In Strathard? Don’t miss the April Programme

Right on our doorsteps in Loch Ard Forest and of great local interest.  Braechurnmor, has been described by RCAHMS as one of the most interesting examples of a pre-clearance Township in Stirlingshire.

We are privileged to have an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable speaker in the shape of Archaeologist and passionate local historian, Jenny Robertson, who carried out the archaelogical survey of the site for the recent hydro-scheme application.

The evening will enlighten us not only on the extensive remains of Big Bruach Caoruinn township but also on other similar sites in rural Scotland.

Come along on Wednesday 6th April – 7.30 in Kinlochard Village Hall.

All welcome to hear more of the mediaeval village in the shadow of Ben Lomond, At Bruach Caorainn, River Bank of the Rowans.

Seldom does it get more local than this.
