Snowdrop Sunday: Scottish Snowdrop Festival

About Snowdrop Sunday: Scottish Snowdrop Festival

Scotland’s finest gardens, woodlands and estates are set to open their gates for the 14th year of the country’s most popular flower festival.

Signaling the end of winter and the promise of spring, the Scottish Snowdrop Festival will showcase some of Scotland’s most beautiful snowdrop collections throughout January, February and March 2020.

More than 60 events will take place nationwide in celebration of the classic winter flower, including snowdrop walks and talks, guided tours and open days for all the family.

Organised by garden tourism group Discover Scottish Gardens and supported by VisitScotland, the Festival aims to encourage locals and tourists to enjoy the wonders of Scotland’s gardens during the snowdrop flowering period and highlight the country’s diverse collections.

As part of this annual festival Hopetoun’s grounds are open for one day only on Sunday 16th February 2020.

Set off on a self-led wander and explore the natural snowdrop display in the Hopetoun hundred acres. There will be maps and a trail for children and adults to follow along the way.

Warm up with delicious food and hot drinks in the Stables Kitchen, open exclusively to Snowdrop Sunday visitors.

What better way to spend your Sunday and get you ready for Spring.
