As spring arrives in the South of Scotland, warmer, brighter days breathe new life into our countryside. The landscape bursts into bloom, as vibrant flowers like daffodils and bluebells take over gardens and woodlands. Across the region, thriving working farms welcome newborn animals and invite visitors to ‘Go Rural’ for a day.

Immerse yourself in colourful communities to celebrate local arts festivals and seasonal events for the whole family. Explore botanic gardens, woodlands and stately homes along cycle routes and trails for all. Or treat your tastebuds to an abundance of fresh, regional produce this season in restaurants and cafes.
