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.
May is fast becoming Edinburghs next big festival month. For big kids there are some fantastic festivals showcasing the exciting local talent behind Scotlands beer, whisky and gin. Hidden Door Festival returns to its next mystery location with it's happy blend of grassroots artists and headline acts, in the words of Barry Gordon “Hidden Door have quietly resuscitated what surely is – even in its current rough ‘n’ ready state – the best live music venue in the country.”
For little kids Imaginate brings the best of children's theatre and dance to Edinburgh.
