Snowdrops and Winter Walks
Start the garden visiting season in style with a visit to a snowdrop garden. These gardens are listed below and full details can be found in the listing page.
Also this winter, Discover Scottish Gardens - supported by Visit Scotland, will organise The Scottish Snowdrop Festival from 25 January to 11 March and Scotland’s Gardens Scheme is participating with its Snowdrops and Winter Walks.
Tip: Snowdrops and Winter Walks could be a perfect choice for those looking for low-key Valentine’s Day ideas. If you want to avoid clichéd activities on 14 February, take your loved one outside for a romantic winter walk. This could be a memorable day for both of you, and very different to a dinner out in a busy restaurant. Make sure to take pictures of yourselves amongst the snowdrops! Many of the gardens provide homemade teas.
