Kylintra Meadows 
On 27th September 2009 volunteers planted a section of cleared ground in Kylintra Park with daffodils as a Remembrance Garden.

Now the daffodils have bloomed and they have made a magnificent show which will be admired for many years to come.

Cyclists at Parkburn 
This year we have had many cyclists staying at Parkburn. We have a large garage for overnight secure storage of cycles and I am willing to do laundry at an agreed price.

Karen Bennett from West Sussex was cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats for Maccmillan Cancer Charity.This is a gruesome challenge especially with the fickle Scottish landscape and even more fickle Scottish weather.

Steve Townsley from Cumbria was out to enjoy the rigors of cycling the Scottish countryside.He has a lot of experience of long distance cycling.I hope he returns to Parkburn on one of his future cycle runs.Look out for his blue tail!!

Amelia, Andrew and Mark were canoeing with others on the west coast of Scotland. Despite the weather they accomplished all they set out to do. I must say I was very impressed with how Amelia very expertly backed out the landrover and canoe trailer from our carpark at an angle and first time! No stress !!!
