EASTER is just days away and with most schools closing for two weeks, there has never been a better time to enjoy family fun in some of Scotland’s most stunning locations. 

Whether its zipping through the treetops on a thrilling woodland adventure, or panning for gold in the picturesque Perthshire countryside, the award-winning Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels has shelled out its top picks to make this Easter egg-stra special for all the family. 

Get up close to nature with a trip to Highland Safaris & Red Deer Centre

Named ‘Best Visitor Experience’ by Visit Scotland, Highland Safaris and Red Deer Centre is a haven for animal lovers and explorers alike. 

The popular tourist destination in Aberfeldy offers everything from Land Rover safaris to boat tours of Loch Tay, as well as the chance to get up close and personal with the magnificent red deer. You may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the famous grouse, elusive mountain hare or the soaring golden eagle as you explore the area’s private hill tracks through forest, mountains and moors. 

What’s more, the centre is home to Perthshire’s only Gold & Gem Panning Flume which has recently reopened for the season. 

Families can get involved in the huge range of activities on offer this Easter – including an Easter egg hunt on the free-to-use Discovery Trail – by booking online: www.highlandsafaris.net
