The hunt for Easter fun is on in Perthshire with the National Trust for Scotland and Cadbury!
Easter hunts will take place in Perthshire at the National Trust for Scotland’s Branklyn Gardens, Killiecrankie, and the Hermitage - where you will be able to follow in the footsteps of Wordsworth, Queen Victoria and Mendelssohn – this Easter.
Almost 50 Easter hunts will 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 dozens of 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.”
Follow the trail of some of Perthshire’s most famous visitors - including Wordsworth, Queen Victoria, and Mendelssohn - in exploring the Hermitage, where a woodland walk leads along the banks of the River Braan to the picturesque folly of Ossian’s Hall, overlooking the Black Linn waterfall.
If you are seeking tranquillity, why not visit Branklyn Garden, 2 acres of magnificent gardens on the south side of Kinnoull Hill overlooking Perth, or the pass of Killiecrankie, near the site where the first shots for the Jacobite cause were fired on 27 July, 1689.
