The Biggest Egg Hunt in the Borders in the Biggest Maze in Scotland!
The Easter Eggstravaganza is back once more for a fabulous day of egg hunting, egg painting and lots of other activities.
With the largest hedged maze in Scotland, there could be no better place for an Easter Egg Hunt. Now in its 18th year, there will be 6,000 mini eggs to be found during a series of egg hunts throughout the day and we guarantee no child will leave empty handed.
The Easter egg hunts are confined to the Under 10’s with an easter egg scramble for under 5’s in the Walled Garden.
But the event is not all about a mad rush for chocolate! There are lots of other fun, hands on activities for families including Scavenger Hunts with Big Egg prizes, Spot the Egg in the House Competition, Easter Bonnet making, musical instrument making, storytelling and face painting.
There are also lots of opportunities to decorate your own egg with eggs kindly donated by Glenrath and you can also join in with the communal decorating of the gigantic 6ft Egg which definitely is not one to be cracked!
Michael Angelo, the extraordinary stilt man will be entertaining the crowds and leading the Easter procession at 3.00pm for everyone to show off their bonnets!
This year there are three egg hunts planned for the under 10’s.
At 1.30pm the first hunt will be for 5-6year olds in the Maze. Then at 3.30pm there will be an under 5’s egg scramble in the Old Walled Garden and at 4.00pm a hunt for 7-9 year olds will be held in the Maze.
In addition, delicious home cooked lunches and teas in our Garden Café with some home brewed Traquair Ales for the grown ups.
