Last Sunday saw the Hammermen and Shoemakers visit Bannockburn House courtesy of Bannockburn House Trust. The house a 17th Century A-listed house has remained relatively unchanged apart from a Victorian extension. On November 14th 2017, Bannockburn House became fully owned by the public.
The party were welcomed by Willie McEwan vice chairman of the Trust who gave them an insight into the history of the house and its purchase. They were then guided round the house by Stuart Campbell (the Deacon Convenor and part time Bannockburn House guide) who explained the use and history of the rooms. Stuart explain that the history is evolving almost on a daily basis as more and more information is discovered.
The tour ended with a cup of tea courtesy of the Trust in the dining room. Deacon of the Hammermen Andrew McEwan thanked Stuart and the Trust on behalf of those present for a fascinating visit and wished them well on their ambitious plans.
