Lambing is in full swing on the farm with happy lambs playing in the fields around the cottages. With the wild-cherry trees in flower in the woodlands and the hill pastures looking a fresh and green, it can be a lovely time of year to visit.

What's on in Edinburgh in May?

Edinburgh,as always, provides a wealth of entertainment. The Hidden Door Arts Festival transforms its next derelict city space into a bustling arts venue.

This May, sampling Scotland's best booze has never been better with Whisky Stramash and the Edinburgh Beer Festival. The kids will be inspired by Imaginate, the dance and theatre festival especially for children.
