Summer is finally here, so why not take a picturesque drive to the Manor House at Fintry this weekend?

On Sunday, the Friends of Fintry are hosting their annual Summer Fair at the Fintry Estate off Westside Road. You can tour one of the Valley’s grandest heritage mansions, march to a Scottish pipe band, check out the crafts and gardening vendors, tuck into tasty food, play kids’ games and tap along to live music.

Tours of the Manor House, built by the Scottish laird James Dun-Waters in the 1920s, cost $5.

Gates to the grounds open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dogs on leash are welcome. Entry is by donation and free for kids and society members.
