With Spring well on its way it’s safe to say that our 2016 season is all systems go! And we just know it’s going to be an Adventurous one…

To commemorate the castle’s 60th anniversary in educational endeavours, we decided to get back to our roots this year, by launching a range of new activities and programmes to encourage young people to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places:

  • Den Building
  • Mini Beast Hunt
  • New and improved Falconry
  • Search and Rescue
  • Equipped to cover all 4 challenges of the John Muir Award.

(to find out more call us on 01388 741 354)

But that’s enough about us, we want to hear about you! Have you visited Ford recently? Do you have any funny memories or stories you’d like to share, or do you have a really good photograph from your school trip with us?  Then we’d love to hear from you!

Nothing brightens our day here at Ford Castle Head Office more than viewing your tweets, posts and photos from your time with us

You can share your thoughts, memories, pictures, letters and even videos with us via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #MyFordCastleAdventure, and after every season we’ll post our favourites here on our blog 🙂

Be creative! And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.
