Summer Visit - Balcaskie
On Saturday 4 July 2015 at 3.00 pm, the summer visit of the Society was made to Balcaskie Estate, St Monans.
Twenty eight members of the Society enjoyed a memorable visit.
Toby Anstruther proved a genial host and gave a brief history of Balcaskie.
The torrential rain of the morning gave way to a glorious afternoon in time for the visit.
There was a conducted tour of house but with ample time to explore the terraced gardens which are aligned to the Bass Rock.
Balcaskie was built before 1629 and was the home of Sir William Bruce, Architect, from 1665. In 1698 it became the home of the Anstruther Family.
