Museum of Rural Life launch
Altogether now – awwwwww!
Three little lambs clad in specially-created East Kilbride tartan jackets were a sight to behold at the National Museum of Rural Life.
And they were all dressed up as the East Kilbride visitor attraction launched this year’s programme of events.
More than 170 new lambs have been born to date at the museum’s 1950s working farm.
Family events during the 2017 season include the ‘Woolly Weekend’ on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4; school holiday fun with the attraction’s ‘Go Wild in Summer’ programme from July 3 to July 7 and July 31 to August 4 and the Heavy Horse Show on July 16.
All the fun of the Country Fair takes place on September 3 with the festive Christmas Fair and Foal Show on December 3.
Visitors to all of the attraction’s events can also explore the modern museum building housing a vast collection of farming equipment and displays telling the fascinating story of Scotland’s rural past.
The working farm – complete with Highland and Aberdeen Angus cattle, Ayrshire dairy cows, Clydesdale horses, sheep, chickens and pigs – is also open throughout the year.
Shirley Maciver, general manager at National Museum of Rural Life, said: “Our new-born lambs are always one of our most popular Spring-time attractions.
“And we are thrilled with these beautiful East Kilbride tartan designs which will help to showcase the delights of both our lambs and our fantastic museum.
“We hope they will encourage even more visitors to come along and enjoy a great family day out with us this season.”
