To accompany ‘Along the Tarland Way’, the young person’s guide, we have created a ‘Look out’ sheet to keep you busy as you travel. There are all sorts of objects, creatures, and plants you can spot. Perhaps you could have a competition with your friends or family; you can download as many ‘Look out’ sheets as you like to use for this journey or another one later on.
Don’t forget to download your certificate when you have completed the whole journey!
Note: Unfortunately some information is incorrect in the Children’s Guide regarding Alastrean House, Marion Miller spent 5 years researching the MacRoberts for her book ‘ Cawnpore to Cromar’ and has added this information.
Alastrean House was built for Lord and Lady Aberdeen and was called The House of Cromar. It later became the property of Lady MacRobert of Douneside and was renamed Alastrean House in memory of her three sons. These young men were all killed, one in a flying accident just before the Second World War and his two brothers whilst on active service during the war. It is a sad story.
