Clanscape

Visit our recently thatched cruck-framed building at Ardess, Rowardennan, to get a chance to try your hand at a variety of traditional skills. 
 
Try the Green Woodworking techniques used in the building construction; help the wool spinners spin their yarns; try stone carving; lend a hand mowing the meadow by scythe; learn rope-making techniques; and enjoy tea and bannocks around the fire. 
 
You can also make artists' willow charcoal to take home, all to the delightful sounds of live traditional music in the open air. 
 
No booking is required; just drop by and join in at any time throughout the day. This is a free event, but donations are welcome to help it happen again! 
 
Our partners for this event include the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and the Haddington Spinners. 
 
To get there from Rowardennan car park, walk north for 300m to the entrance to the youth hostel, then follow the brown signs for Ben Lomond ranger service for another 300m. 
 
Please note Forestry Commission Scotland charge £3 per car for parking at Rowardennan car park.
