Dozens and dozens of Easter hunts take place at the National Trust for Scotland’s historic houses, glorious gardens and cracking countryside over the Easter weekend.
For the ninth consecutive year, the conservation charity has teamed up with Cadbury to host Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts all over the country from Friday 25 to Monday 28 March, from Dumfries and Galloway to Wester Ross.
The Easter Bunny has left clues to follow, and children can collect them, solve the puzzle and claim a chocolatey reward.
Carly Lamberty, Marketing Manager said:
“We’re getting cracking on our visitor season extra early this year, with lots of Easter fun thanks to our partnership with Cadbury. And every egg hunt helps us to look after the special places in our care.”
Highlights include the beautiful formal gardens at Greenbank in Glasgow, and the rugged coastline and woodland at Culzean Castle and Country Park in Ayrshire.
Then there’s Crathes Castle in Aberdeenshire, where amongst the woodsand gardens you might find red squirrels, woodpeckers and herons. At Newhailes in Musselburgh, there is lots to explore and even the remains of an 18th-century tea house to discover.
Or, why not follow in the footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots and lord it up like a Stuart king in the Renaissance gardens at Falkland Palace in Fife.
