Family Trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park
7th August 2019
Cernach’s first family trip was a wonderful success! The weather was definitely on our side for once as it was scorcher of a day. On arrival at the park everyone took in the monkey enclosure from the safety of the bus. Afterwards some of our tenants had a BBQ, took in some of the animal exhibitions, had a shot in the play park before rounding the day off with a bubble gum ice cream oh yum! We are looking forward to our next adventure wherever that might take us.
