Easter Egg Trails 2024

Two young girls skip across a grassy lawn, smiling from ear to ear. Each carries a trail sheet and wears Easter egg boppers on their heads. Their family members are in the background, watching them and laughing.
Fun for every-bunny! Easter Egg Trails will take place at 35 Trust places from Friday 29 March to Monday 1 April 2024.

Make this an Easter to remember and share special moments with your loved ones at our charity’s amazing Easter Egg Trails all across Scotland. Combine a walk to take in the spring colour and wildlife with your puzzle-solving skills to earn a delicious Easter treat – we guarantee fun for all the family!

Follow the trail, collect the clues, solve the puzzle and win your chocolate-y reward! The trail at each place is completely different (you are very welcome to try as many as you like!) and will help you and your family explore and learn more about the stories of the property. Each trail sheet costs £4.

You can also keep an eye on our property Facebook pages for more information about each trail.
