ADDITIONAL UK TOURS - BALFRON'S HISTORIC KIRKYARD
The guided tour by Pat Thomson our family history expert will begin at Balfron War Memorial (G63 0NY) at 2pm on Thursday 26th May and on to the kirkyard for insight into the history of many of the graves – not only the military ones. Even in May, participants should wear weather-appropriate clothing as Balfron is famous for its four seasons in one day climate. Although free, for comfortable numbers it should be pre-booked.
