The House of Dun near Montrose, JM Barrie’s Birthplace in Kirriemuir and Barry Mill near Carnoustie will host family-friendly Easter trails from Friday, April 7 to Monday, April 10 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.

Each trail challenges chocolate hunters to find a series of hidden clues dotted around the gardens and grounds of the properties, with each offering something completely different, providing the perfect excuse to try out more than one.

Iain Hawkins, Regional Director for the North East, 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 trails in Angus support 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.”

Easter trails will be taking place at House of Dun, Garden & Estate will be open from April 7 - 10 April, 11am-3pm; JM Barrie’s Birthplace on April 8 and 9, 11am-3pm (last entry 3pm) and at Barry Mill, April 8 and April 9, 11am-3pm (last entry 3pm).
