School Visits

Would your school group like a fun and active educational visit this year?

At Bowhill you can choose a day to suit what your group is studying. An indoor visit to Bowhill House brings history to life: to enter the Victorian Kitchen, the drawing room or dining room is to step back in time, and the wide acres of Bowhill Estate make the ideal place to learn about nature, wildlife and our relationship with the environment.

We will help you plan your day to target the four capacities of the Curriculum for Excellence whilst ensuring that everyone has fun at the same time.

Whilst we are updating our lesson plans please call Bowhill on 01750 22204 to discuss your visit. Rory Powell will help you with your outdoor projects and Helen Currie with indoor visits – though you can speak to any of our office staff! Or you could email us
