Popular visitor attractions across the country are taking part in one of Scotland’s most spectacular flower festivals.

Signaling the end of winter and the promise of spring, the Scottish Snowdrop Festival will showcase the country’s beautiful snowdrop collections until March 11.

Here in East Renfrewshire, Greenbank Garden will be providing guided walks on March 9 where visitors can view the collection of snowdrops.

Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland, visitors can also see the beautiful statue of Foam – a bronze water nymph set in a circular pool with fountains.

Catherine Erskine, chair of Discover Scottish Gardens and founder of the Snowdrop Festival in Scotland, said: “Over the years, more of us are falling in love with the dainty winter flower and very much look forward to the Festival as gardens open up again for the new year.

“As the Festival grows in popularity, we encourage the younger generation to discover the world of snowdrops for themselves.”
