A Spring Day at Fintry

Shorts CreekHigh Water

If you’re looking for something for your family and friends to do this May long weekend why not take a drive to Fintry.

The water in Short’s Creek is rushing with the Spring melt making the views from the stairs breathtaking.  Captain James Dun-Waters used the force of that rushing water to run a Pelton Wheel which supplied electricity to his home and out buildings.

Closer to the Manor House you will see many flowers blooming.  Alice Dun-Waters loved her garden.  The Friends of Fintry are working hard to bring her garden back to life.  This time of year with the Irises in bloom, roses starting to open and the lilacs fading away it is easy to take yourself back to the peaceful country pleasures of the last century.
