Bede House Walk

One of the Bailies guided tours to the Bede House excavations.  There is a lot to see and new features are continually being unearthed.  If you would like to see more why not attend the next free scheduled walk on Thursday, 2nd August at 11.00 pm from the Bennachie Centre.  Please wear sensible footwear, no booking required.  There is a short walk to the site.  Each tour should last about one and a half hours.  Dogs are welcome if under control and please keep on leads while walking around the site. 



Bailies Workparty - Saturday, 7th July 2018

This month’s workparty was clearing bracken, etc., around two of the Colony Houses.  We also weeded, watered and generally tidied up the Kailyard at Shepherds Lodge and checked the recently planted trees in the Foraging Forest.  Despite the hard winter and very dry summer the fruit bushes and trees are doing well and, in some cases, even producing small amounts of berries, apples and damsons, which was not expected in their first year.  Let’s hope this is a good omen for future crops!


Bede House Excavation 

Due to the good turn out of excavators fine sections of wall are now appearing and survey work is well underway.
