15 May 2008 - "The Kennedys of Culzean"

Thursday 15th May saw the last of our monthly meetings for the 2007-2008 session. Though there was a noticeable drop in the number attending - mainly due to holiday and family commitments - those present were treated to a delightful and knowledgeable presentation on 'The Kennedys of Culzean' by Lorna Cawood, for seven years a Park Ranger and thereafter Education Officer within Culzean Castle. Lorna's experience of all aspects of Culzean Country Park ensured that we were given an in-depth resume of the Kennedy family's connections with Culzean and a closer look at the history of the castle itself. Of particular interest was the ongoing research and excavation work, using documents and architects' plans, undertaken by the Trust. We should all look around with more curious eyes on future visits to this National Trust gem lying on our doorstep.
