Magical family fun with a fairy hunt at the House of Dun

FAIRIES are set to invade the House of Dun and the team need your help.

There’s something magical going on at the National Trust for Scotland’s House of Dun near Montrose during every weekend in November as a fairy hunt will get under way for families.

Eagle-eyed younger visitors are being invited to come along and help the team track down some fairies who seem to have got loose and are playing hide and seek in the grounds of the stunning A listed Georgian country house.

Apparently, the fairies came to the house to be sold in the shop, but they quickly took flight and hid themselves all round the property.

Property manager John McKenna said: “The fairies obviously love it at House of Dun. They can feel that there is a touch of magic in the air. We need our younger visitors to help us keep track of the fairies and make sure that they don’t fly off into too much mischief.”

The fairy hunts will take place every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon until 4 p.m. in November and you can pick up your first clue from the shop, everyone is welcome.

Entry to the fairy hunt is just £2 per child and in order to keep mums and dads amused, the shop will be open every weekend throughout November and there will be a selection of excellent festive gifts, decorations and cards on offer to inspire you in the festive season.
