Nestled in beautiful woodland and gardens, you’ll find Bannockburn House – a magnificent 17th century mansion with a rich, colourful past.
Once home to the first baronet of Bannockburn and now owned by the local community, the House is steeped in history.
Friends of Bannockburn House were responsible for creating amazing pieces of the Mapestry - with creations made at home during pandemic lockdown in 2020.
Four species of deer are found in Scotland: red, roe, fallow and sika. Red and roe deer are native species.
Winter is a quieter time for deer but they may still be seen grazing.
The Robin is one UK species you can see in the winter. They continue to sing in the winter and are very territorial.
Overwintering Great Crested Newt
Great Crested Newt overwinter in the colder months of the year in sheltered areas such as old tree roots, mammal burrows etc. which offer protection from the weather and potential predators!
Mountain hares turn white in winter to blend in with snow. This iconic species is larger than a rabbit and graze on vegetation in the uplands. They will shelter in a small depression they make on the ground but can spring into action if disturbed!
