When we went to kinneil house we cleared away the ivy and it was very hard work to clear it and it was fun to do.

At Kinneil house we learned that a women jumped one off Kinneil house window into the stream and she was the white lady and in the 17th century she leaped out off the window off kinneil house because she was trying to run away from her evil husband.
