An Oban land and estate agent has cemented its commitment to the great outdoors by sponsoring the annual Stramash Family Fun Day.Stramash Family Fun Day 2014 is sponsored by Bell Ingram. Check out the pictures from last year's event which was a big success.

Bell Ingram, experts in rural property, land and estate management, decided to support the day with a generous donation to help encourage people to learn and explore as much of Scotland’s nature as possible.

Joining forces with Stramash, a social enterprise and charity that encourages people to experience the outdoors, the fun day will take place at Inverawe estate just outside Oban on 31 August.

Visitors to the day will get the chance to explore the sprawling estate while trying a variety of adventurous activities including canoeing, archery and bush craft.

Victoria McCusker of Bell Ingram, said: “Stramash is a fantastic charity and we are delighted to be able to help out by sponsoring the fun day.

“It’s a great opportunity to really bring together people who may not traditionally have access to countryside activities. Learning how to fish, canoe or play archery is also an excellent way for families to become more engaged with the outdoors and spend quality time together.

“As one of the UK’s leading land agents, we have strong links with outdoor activities dealing with everything from managing land or estates to promoting country sports.

“This is an area we are extremely passionate about and hope lots of families can come along and see what Scotland’s fantastic countryside has to offer.

“Nowadays, many families tend to spend a great deal of their time indoors so hopefully this event will encourage more people to get out in the fresh air and take advantage of new, exciting activities.”

The Fun Day will take place from 11am- 4pm and will cost £10 for a family (two adults and two children) or £4 per adult and £2 per child.

Aileen Watkins, Outdoor Learning Manager at Stramash, said: “We are thrilled with the donation from Bell Ingram as it will help continue the education of the outdoors well beyond the family fun day.Stramash Family Fun Day 2014 is sponsored by Bell Ingram.

“The day itself is a great way to encourage families to come and explore outdoor activities and see what Scotland’s nature really has to offer, one of our main aims as a charity.

“From woodland art and archery to fishing and canoeing, we designed the day to ensure there will be something to suit everyone of all ages and abilities, providing a real taste of what we have to offer.

“The team here are now all looking forward to welcoming visitors rain or shine and hopefully get everyone trying something new, taking away a great experience from the day.”

There is also a cafe and BBQ to satisfy hungry visitors after working up an appetite from all of the activities and exploring.
