This mighty oak tree stands silently keeping watch on the River Turk as it tumbles into our village. It has a girth of 3.3m which suggests the tree has been growing here for around 145 years.
A coincidence perhaps but The Old Trossachs School was opened in 1875 – also 145 years ago.
Oak Trees can live for 1,000 years, but more typically 600 years, so it has a way to go yet. The old school though closed its doors over 4 years ago: We will bring it back to life!
Please help us give the Old Trossachs School a new life at the centre of our community by pledging and sharing at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/the-old-trossachs-school
