It was such a perfect day on the field trip to Mill of Kintail Conservation Area, near Almonte. And with the hot weather, this cloister provided perfect shade. Deceivingly not a heritage building, it was only erected in 1967 to honour the memory of Robert Tait McKenzie, on what would have been his one-hundredth birthday. McKenzie was the a Canadian-born, American Renaissance man who was friends with Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts. The cloister sits among the conservatory's 154 acres of land that provides three distinct habitats for the surrounding nature: field, forest, and riverbed.
