Fun activities at EK museum for Harvest weekend

The National Museum of Rural Life are hosting ranger walks, scarecrow-making, storytelling and more this weekend.

From bannock-making to straw craft sessions, there’s plenty to do at the National Museum of Rural Life event on today and tomorrow from 11am to 4pm.

Families can learn about the local roe deer population, as well as other wildlife on the 170-acre area.

Also, as well as just finding out about cereal crops and bread-making methods, they can have a go at making traditional Scottish bannocks.

Craft sessions will teach how to tie hairst knots (harvest love knots) using this year’s harvested straw, as well as how to make miniature scarecrows.

The event is free with museum admission and annual pass.
