Fabulous Dinner at GWCT Scottish Auction, Prestonfield
The Annual GWCT Scottish Auction took place at Prestonfield on 12th May this year and attended by a record 485 people.
For once the event was blessed with sunshine and the atmosphere for a very enjoyable evening was set while guests mingled, sipping champagne, in and out of the marquee and among the Jaguars and Landrovers displayed by our reception sponsors, Pentland Landrover. After a welcome from the Chairman, Bryan Johnston, and an update on the Trust’s activities in Scotland from Teresa Dent, GWCT Chief Executive, all were called to dinner.
The dinner, sponsored by Saffery Champness, was once again a tour de force by Prestonfield. They served a starter of rabbit & shiitake mushroom pressing (the rabbits having come from the GWCT’s demonstration farm at Auchnerran in Deeside), and followed it with roast loin of roe deer, very generously donated by Highland Game. The meat was of exceptional quality and universally considered delicious.
