The 11th annual Scottish Snowdrop Festival (from now until 12 March) features some of the best gardens and woodlands in Scotland, displaying huge drifts of these beautiful little flowers that herald the imminent arrival of Spring.
It’s the 10th anniversary of The Dance Summer School and the dates this year for Kilgraston School, Bridge of Earn, Perth are 23 – 29 July and 30 July – 5 August. For parents and families who are looking for somewhere nearby to stay, then River Edge Lodges fits the bill.
Hills an Hour or Two Away
Sgor Gaoith is a fantastic Munro with breathtaking views. Starts at Glenfeshie near Newtonmore.
Two Munros for the price of one. Starts at Ben Lawers car park between Kenmore and Killin.
A favourite of mine because I love Corrie Fee. It’s a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSCI) and I could potter about here all day. It just so happens that you enter the cathedral-like corrie and then walk along the floor of it, before climbing up the other side to reach Mayar and Dreish. Another Munro-bagging day where 2 Munros are climbed.
At 2 hours 20 mins I absolutely have to include The Ben. Ben Nevis is the highest peak in Britain and is eminently do-able in a day from here.
Another close Munro – 40 mins away. Schiehallion is the conical peak seen from many other peaks in Scotland. It means Fairy Hill of the Caledonians
At only 40 minutes drive away, Ben Vrackie is a great chance to visit Pitlochry and climb a Corbett. I like this one.
Mount Keen – Munro, an hour and a half away.
Ben Lomond – Munro an hour and a half away
Ben More – Munro an hour and 20 mins away
There are many more …
