Nostalgia: Open day at Bowhill

editorial image

Bowhill Estate hosted its annual Children’s Open Day in May 1991. Each of the estate’s departments – farming, forestry, gamekeeping, fishing, building and the ranger service – put on displays, attracting over 1,000 children from the Borders, Lothian and Edinburgh.

Here, Knowepark primary children are learning about equestrian care, with the help of one of the estate’s 
ponies, who seemed to be enjoying the attention – more or less.
