2023 SVBWG Meeting: The Murthly Estate

The 2023 SVBWG Meeting will be held on the Murthly estate, Perth and Kinross, on Saturday 20 May 2023, by kind invitation of the Murthly Estate and Murthly History Group. Some members will remember a previous visit to Murthly Castle; this time we will visit the estate buildings and discuss their origins, construction and purposes.

We will meet at Murthly Village Hall, PH1 4EN, at 1030 for tea and coffee, and depart for the estate at 1100. As parking near the sites of interest is limited, we will car share for this stage.

For those coming by public transport, arrangements can be made for collection from Birnam Station or the Broxden Park and Ride. The Village Hall will be the base for the day, and we will return there for lunch, and at the end of the day at around 1600.

Tea and coffee will be provided, but please bring your own lunch; the village shop sells basic lunches.

All sites are within easy walking distances from the parking sites; some uneven terrain and steps are involved, so please wear stout footwear and be prepared for all weather conditions.

To reserve a place please contact Veronica Fraser by 12 May at (or on 0131 651 6731, and be prepared to leave a message with contact details). The cost for the day is £10 paid preferably by bank transfer in advance, or in cash on the day.

We look forward to seeing you there.
