7th August, Kellie Critter Hunt - For Children, 10am & 2pm
The fun begins on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August with a critter hunt, led by Anne Traill (Visitor Services Assistant). This is a fun-filled, 2-hour adventure for children aged around 6–9 and their accompanying adults.
Armed with a magnifying glass, a critter trail checklist and critter stickers, each child will become a Kellie Critter Explorer. Kellie critter experts will take them on a trail to find and examine critters (real and decorative) found in the castle and garden. Once they have successfully tracked down all the critters, the Kellie Critter Explorers will make their own critters or critter hotels out of foraged materials from the garden.
Tickets cost £5 plus booking fee and advance booking is essential.
