The National Trust for Scotland is offering the perfect place to make hoppy memories this Spring thanks to 32 Easter trails happening at its properties across the country, including one here in Renfrewshire.

Weaver’s Cottage in Kilbarchan will host a family-friendly Easter trail from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th April where visitors can follow the trail, collect the challenging clues to solve a tricky puzzle and win some tasty chocolate-y prizes, with entry to the trails costing £4 per person.

The fun-filled Easter trail challenges chocolate hunters to find a series of hidden clues dotted around the cottage and gardens owned and managed by the conservation charity.

Ian McLelland, National Trust for Scotland Regional Director for the South and West region, said: “We’re really eggs-cited to launch our Easter trails this year with a bumper number of events taking place at our properties up and down the country. The trails offer a fun day out that can be enjoyed by all the family or can be a great way to keeps kids entertained while parents explore our beautiful gardens, historic properties or countryside places.

The trail at Weaver’s Cottage supports our goal to provide inspiring visitor experiences at our properties, offering nature, beauty and heritage for everyone as part of our vision outlined in our 10-year strategy launched in 2022. The funds raised through our Easter trails support our vital work and will allow us to continue to care for and protect Scotland’s cultural and natural assets now and into the future for everyone to enjoy.”

The Weaver’s Cottage Easter trail runs from Friday 7th to Monday 10th April, 10am-5pm (last entry 4pm – usual admission prices apply). Weaver’s Cottage is a working museum featuring the history of hand-woven textiles that were once the pride of Scotland’s weaving industry.

The cottage gives a glimpse of the living and working conditions of handloom weavers from the period. The 200-year-old weaving loom is one of the main features at the property while the garden has a wide variety of plants, which have been used to make natural fabric dyes.

The properties in the Trust’s care, and activities such as the Easter trails, contribute to its strategy to deliver Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone. The 10-year strategy, unveiled in 2022, refocuses its vision of caring for, sharing, and conserving Scotland’s heritage. Read more about the strategy at:
