On the programme on July 30...

The Beechgrove team take the high road to the beautiful Howe of Cromar on the edge of the Highlands and the Cairngorm National Park for a special Beechgrove Roadshow.

The team base themselves in the Cromar village of Tarland and the MacRobert Memorial Hall is the fabulous venue for a Q&A event. Mark Stephen MCs the session and there’s no shortage of questions from the audience and an abundance of fascinating answers from Jim, Carole, George and Chris.

George visits Aboyne to an impressive bridge over the River Dee, one of George’s favourite fishing rivers. Many who pass this way get to glimpse some of Anne Harper’s beautiful garden, close beside the river. Anne shows George her collection of Scottish cooking apples and a huge border of architectural plants which is there for people to admire from the bridge.

Jim goes to the Tarland Community Garden, an exciting new venture, to find real community spirit with gardeners generous with their time and eager to help others.

The team end their tour from Don and Monika’s beautiful garden a short distance from Tarland village square. They are keen amateurs who are learning to master the vagaries of the weather and the short growing season.
