There was a whole host of activities on offer at Bute Forest’s open day on Saturday, with the sunshine providing excellent conditions for getting out and about.

Youngsters enjoyed face-painting, pond-dipping with nets, and arts and crafts, whilst big kids were interested to see a demonstration of the forest’s saw-mill machinery.

A forestry demonstration by John McMillan’s Clydesdales proved very popular, as did a barbeque offering burgers and refreshments throughout the day.
