Glad Rags & Cartridge Bags Ladies Day, House of Schivas, Ythanbank, Ellon AB41 7TN

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

Discover the story of Mary Gray, an outlander in life and even in death; as she haunts the house today. Enjoy the fabulous Scottish paintings collection, and many special features which make  Schivas memorable, from its Jacobite connections and turbulent past due to the Catholic faith the Gray Family held dear, through to the challenges the House and Estate face today.
