Auchindrain joins the Eden Project’s Big Lunch to mark its 50th anniversary as a preserved heritage site

Auchindrain, Scotland’s last preserved historic Highland farm township, sees the 50th anniversary of its current status as a preserved heritage site on 1st June 2013.

To mark the occasion, Auchindrain is joining in a nationwide celebration of the power of community by doing its own Big Lunch, organised by Britain’s famous Eden Project.

The purpose of the Big Lunch is ‘to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK to have lunch with their neighbours once a year in a simple act of community, friendship and fun’.

It started back in 2009 and last year, 2012, the project’s research shows that an astonishing 8.5 million people took part in Big Lunch events to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Get the Auchindrain Big Lunch in your diary now – it’s the date after the anniversary on the nationwide Big Lunch day of 2nd June – from 12 noon onwards.

Come with friends, find old friends there and make some new ones.

Get your food from Auchindrain’s lovely Tearoom or bring a picnic. And – for this one day, admission is free.
