Why not take a spring break and enjoy the beautiful scenery as Scotland shrugs off its winter blanket and spring begins to uncurl?
April and May can be lovely warm months in Scotland and it’s a great time for getting active in the great outdoors with mild weather and lengthening days. Spring is also ideal for making the most of tourist attractions without the the summer crowds (although it will get busier around the Easter holidays in April). Accommodation can be booked up for the Easter holidays so make sure you plan in advance.
Landscapes transformed by seas of spring flowers – such as snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells – are a fantastic backdrop for a range of outdoor activities, such as hill walking, golfing and fishing.
Spring is a good time to embrace Scotland’s cities before the summer tourists arrive or, with new-born lambs and calves roaming the fields, you could take the family on an ‘agritourism’ farm stay for an Easter break.
