July 2016 saw the DIWC members going for a day trip to Scone Palace. Read on to see what a wonderful day out they all had and take a look at some of the pictures taken on the day.
Welcomed by Hamish the cow and a Peacock!
We gathered at the centre at 9 am and made our way to the Palace. Upon arriving at the Palace we were welcomed by a beautiful peacock and Hamish the cow. This got the children excited from the beginning of the trip.
We walked to the Palace and were given a tour around the grounds. Scone Palace has an exciting history as one of Scotland’s most important stately homes. This was also the world’s famous crowning place of the King of Scots.The Palace has an outstanding collection of antiques, paintings and artefacts from around the world.
We then made our way to the garden for an afternoon picnic lunch. The sun was out, the peacocks flared their feathers, and the children enjoyed themselves.We all brought our packed lunches and spent the afternoon chatting away under the bright Scottish sun.
