Stirling Council Area Countryside Ranger Claire Bird said: "This is a great opportunity to get an insight into this ancient art and the skills involved.  We'll be continuing work on a section of boundary wall between Mine Woods and Bridge of Allan Golf course.  People who have previously taken part have found it so useful they've gone back home and built walls in their own gardens!"

Refreshments and all tools will be provided however, places are limited and booking is essential please e-mail or phone us on 08452 777 000 to book your place.
