Winter days, however short, do not disappoint. From the rich colours of evergreen trees to the beauty of snow-covered fields, this is the perfect time to leave the bustle behind and take to the great outdoors. 🐿🐦🌲🏞

Since 1986, a team of dedicated volunteers has been producing beautiful tapestries and needlework to enhance Culross Palace, drawing on 16th- and 17th-century patterns for their inspiration. #ProjectReveal
