Season begins at House of Dun

WORK has been under way at the National Trust for Scotland’s properties across the Angus area, as staff and volunteers prepare to welcome visitors once again.

The House of Dun, Angus Folk Museum and JM Barrie’s Birthplace all re-open to the public in April.

The first to cast off its dust covers is the House of Dun. The stunning Adam-designed Georgian country house is opened on March 31.

Property manager John McKenna said: “As ever, we have a packed programme of events on offer at the House of Dun. It all kicks off over the Easter weekend with our Cadbury Easter Egg Trail. And also on Good Friday we have a concert featuring Vienna Horn players direct from Austria. We are delighted to welcome back The Vienna Horns to Dun. Their last performance was simply stunning.”

The two-hour concert starts at 7.30pm, when a selection of traditional Austrian nibbles will be served, with a complementary glass of wine. Tickets are £10 in advance or £12 on the night – child tickets are £4 and family tickets £20. For further information, please call 01674 810264 or book online at www.nts.org.uk/events.

The Easter Egg Trails run from Good Friday, April 6, to Easter Monday, April 9, from 12 noon till 4pm.
