Wonderful world of honey bees voucher

 

Come and explore the wonderful world of honey bees and bee keeping. During the three hour experience you will learn all about honey bees - interesting facts; who lives in the hive; the lifecycle of the honey bee and how they make honey.

We will also take a good look at the equipment that you need and the bee keeping year. We'll look in detail at the various bits that make up a bee hive and you'll also make up some hive frames and make your own simple beeswax candle to take home.

After dressing up in 'the beekeeping gear' (provided), we will make our way down to the Apiary where we will get in close and personal with the bees on a live hive inspection.

  • You don't need to be staying in our Bothy to sign up to this experience.

If you are are not staying in our Bothy, we are also happy to run private / special bespoke sessions just for your group, as long as there are between 3 and 6 people. Simply buy our vouchers and then contact Chris (chris@doonbankcottage.co.uk) to arrange a convenient date. We are happy to run both weekday and weekend sessions.
