Pop along to Barry Mill duck race

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,
