A PRI­VATE gar­den in Port Ap­pin was re­cently opened to the pub­lic, rais­ing more than £1,000 for char­ity.

Own­ers of Dal­nashean, Al­lis­ter and Kath­leen Fer­gu­son, were tak­ing part in the Scot­land’s Gar­dens scheme and wel­comed vis­i­tors on May 13 and 14 to view the gar­dens and buy crafts made by Al­lis­ter.

Around £600 of the money raised will go to the char­i­ties sup­ported by Scot­land’s Gar­dens, which raises funds for char­i­ties by or­gan­is­ing gar­den open days through­out Scot­land.

The re­main­ing funds raised from the Dal­nashean open day will go to Ap­pin Parish Church. PEO­PLE of all lev­els of fit­ness are be­ing en­cour­aged to join a spon­sored walk from Ap­pin Parish Church to Crea­gan in aid of church funds.

The walk on June 24 will go along the cy­cle track and will be split into sec­tions for those who don’t feel they can man­age the full dis­tance.

Any­one in­ter­ested in tak­ing part can con­tact Mar­garet Ross, Ap­pin, for a spon­sor form.

Al­lis­ter and Kath­leen Fer­gu­son.
