Mother’s Day is a Dun thingon March 2, 2012 at 10:51 pm
The National Trust for Scotland’s House of Dun is recognising the hard work of the mums of Angus this Mother’s Day by giving them a very special treat – free entry into the historic property.
On Sunday 18 March, the house will open especially to welcome deserving mothers into its spacious rooms. After a free tour around the spectacular property, mums can head over to Café Dun to be presented with a special menu and their very own corsage. With the gardens still covered with flowering snowdrops, a walk through the grounds is the perfect way to round off an enchanting day.
Property Manager John McKenna said:
“Mothering Sunday in Scotland dates back to the 16th century, so by treating your mum at the House of Dun this year, you’re celebrating an old Scottish tradition as well as saying a big thank you! I hope this event will give people the chance to truly spoil their mums, in return for all they do on every other day of the year.”
The house opens from 12.00 to 17.00 on Sunday 18 March, with the last tour leaving at 16.30. Normal entry prices apply to those accompanying mothers.
The House of Dun re-opens for visitors on 31 March. The gardens and grounds are open daily.
