TAKE the family along to the National Trust for Scotland’s Barry Mill for the annual duck race.

The duck race has been held at Barry Mill for a number of years and has proved to be an extremely popular event.

Peter Ellis, property manager for Barry Mill said: “This is our most successful event that we hold at this property with up to a quarter of our annual visitors in one day! If the weather is favourable many families come and bring a picnic – there is a great family atmosphere.

“Due to the popularity of the event we actually run a number of successive races and the last couple of years we ran a total of 20 throughout each afternoon with 30 individually numbered yellow plastic ducks per race – a total of 600 ducks on the day.”

Each duck will cost £1.

The races will take place between 12 noon and 5 pm on Sunday, April 8.

The event is kindly supported by Friends of Barry Mill.

There will be special admission charges to the Mill costing £4.50 for adults, with children going for free,
