Search for clues and solve the puzzle at our places this Easter!
We’re running Easter Egg Trails at 21 of our places across Scotland this Easter weekend.

We’re really pleased to let you know that our Easter events are back this year at 21 Trust places across Scotland. There’s lots of family fun to be enjoyed in the fresh air: from Brodie Castle in the Highlands to Culzean Castle & Country Park in Ayrshire; and from Greenbank Garden in Glasgow to Newhailes in Musselburgh.

This Easter weekend, follow the trail, collect the clues, solve the puzzle and win your chocolate-y reward! The trail at each place is completely different (the perfect excuse to try your hand at more than one!) and will help you and your family explore and learn more about the stories of each property. It’s £4 per trail and there’s no need to book.

Keep an eye on the our property Facebook pages for more information about each trail.
