The 2009 Burnett Gathering - Thursday Activities
Thursday July 30th Crathes Castle and Gardens On Thursday morning, the group had a tour of Crathes Castle. For some this was followed by a thorough guided tour of the gardens by the Head Gardener, Callum Pirnie. During the morning, some of the party were taken to the River Dee where they tried their hand at catching a salmon on this world famous river. Sadly, there was no success although there had been salmon and sea trout caught earlier in the week. Fishers were attended by the ghilllie, Brian Sim, and his assistant, Cleve Cowie Visit to Kemnay House In the afternoon, about 20 of us went to Kemnay House where we were shown round by Susan Burnett of Kemnay, her eldest daughter, Letitia, and a number of guides including Michael, (former lecturer in legal history at Aberdeen University), and Margaret Christie and Duncan Downie who actually made the magnificent Dolls House which is a item of particular interest. Drum Castle Home of the Irvine family since the days of King Robert the Bruce, Drum is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Many of the party went to Drum Castle where they were privileged to receive a guided tour by David Irvine of Drum. House of Burnett Annual General Meeting On Thursday evening, a meeting of the House of Burnett was held in the Club House at the Inchmarlo Golf Centre where many of the party were staying. Although I don't know the extent to which it was taken up, golf facilities, which include 9-hole and 18-hole courses and a magnificent driving range, were available to members of the group at advantageous rates. The club-house was also very convenient for breakfast and other meals for the group.
