Scottish Italian Car Day 2013 - 04/05/2013
The Alfa Romeo Owners Club (Scottish Section) have announced their annual Scottish Italian Car Day venue as the Hill of Tarvit Mansion House near cupar, this is the second year the event has been held at this venue.
Last year seen one the highest turn out of Italian cars for sometime, the venue is very easy to access, the Mansion House is operated by the National Trust and is set in beautiful gardens. Hill of Tarvit is one of Scotland’s finest Edwardian mansionhouses, replete with a splendid collection of antiques, furniture, Chinese porcelain and superb paintings by Sir Henry Raeburn, Allan Ramsay and eminent Dutch artists.
The original 17th-century Wemyss House was remodelled in 1906 by Sir Robert Lorimer for wealthy jute manufacturer Frederick Sharp to showcase his outstanding collection of French, Chippendale-style and locally influenced furniture, porcelain and art accumulated by several generations of the prosperous Sharp family.
Surrounding Hill of Tarvit are some 113 hectares (279 acres) of gardens, woods, open heath and parkland to explore. Robert Lorimer also designed the landscaped gardens, with formal lawns, yew hedging, flowering borders and a sunken rose garden.
We enjoyed fantastic weather last year, fingers crossed that 2013 sees a heatwave too......
Western Alfa Romeo will be there again this year with a display of current New Alfa Romeo's and a selection of parts and accessories, we look forward to seeing you there, if you would like any more information please don't hesitate to contact us direct at the dealership or www.alfascot.com or www.nts.org.uk.
