43 tickets were sold for this outing.

There was a conducted tour of the Ground by the Head Gardener.

Several members having cameras, a number of plates were exposed and several groups taken.  On returning the company found dinner laid out in a very inviting manner by the purveyor Mr John Pringle.  After dinner various toasts were proposed and drunk.  The music then struck up, and dancing, games, and fun of every description was the order of the day until seven o clock when a move towards the station was made, and all arrived safely in Edinburgh about nine o clock.

Several valuable prizes, presented by various members of the Society, were awarded to winners of the games, and carried off by them in triumph.  The weather was all that could be desired, and the picnic a decided success.
