Come and join the National Trust for Scotland this Easter for an eggsperience like no other, with the return of the popular Cadbury Easter Egg Trails across Dumfries & Galloway. With several places to choose from, there’s bound to be a trail just a bunny hop away.

On each trail families collect clues, solve puzzles and even win a very special Cadbury Egghead. Best of all, each trail is unique – a great reason to try more than one.

It’s an ideal way to explore the charity’s properties whilst spring is in full bloom.

At Threave you can discover the beautiful gardens created by the National Trust for Scotland’s School of Heritage Gardening, including the secret garden and the glasshouse crammed full of exotic plants.

Meanwhile why not take the chance to go on an adventure and see the stunning waterfall at Grey Mare’s Tail Nature Reserve – it’s the fifth highest in the UK!

Come and experience the wonderful Japanese influenced garden at Broughton House, once home to the Scottish artist E. A. Hornel. Inside it’s full of artwork produced by Hornel himself and a few other ‘Glasgow Boys’.

Marketing Manager, Carly Lamberty, says the properties are looking forward to these fantastic family events:

“For the eighth year running, we’re been working with Cadbury to make Easter an adventure for all the family! We’ve added Cadbury Easter Egg Trails to 5 new Trust properties this year, taking us to 50 trails across Scotland. From gardens and countryside to castles, palaces and country parks, we have something for everyone. It’s guaranteed to be cracking good fun!”
