Brrrrrrrr winter has arrived !

Or is it still autumn ?, the weather has been wonderful for such a long time we have almost forgotten what it feels like to be cold but as we know every cloud has a silver lining & it is lovely to sit by super warm warm woodburning stoves in winter....it is making us think of lovely twinkly, christmasssy things...still a couple of cottages left for Christmas bookings.

British Military Fitness

at Cardross Estate 07 June 2014

For the first time Cardross Estate will be hosting The Major Series: Voted the UK's 'Best Trail Race', the award-winning Major Series is the UK's most friendly obstacle race! The 5k and 10k courses are littered with all kinds of obstacles, hills, mud and water, but most importantly there will be over 40 troops to help you through the obstacles, but maybe challenge you to a few too!

The Major Series is all about teamwork - it's not just a run. Determination and the camaraderie of your fellow countrymen will help you through. Believe it or not, you will take part in the entire challenge with a huge grin on your face! Come along ready to take on a big challenge but most importantly to have a laugh, meet some new people.
