7. Visit the glorious gardens of Argyll and Bute
May is all about flowers. Surround yourself with the colours and scents of a profusion of May blossoms in the Glorious Gardens of Argyll and Bute. The Bluebells still carpet the ground at Inveraray Castle and Ardkinglas Gardens and the Rhododendron Festival takes place throughout May, with these flamboyant blooms competing for your attention.
8. Feel the festival fever
The Strathyre Music Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend, 26 - 28 May, promises a "fantastic family-friendly atmosphere in a beautiful setting". For a taste of Scotland, the Loch Fyne Food Fair, 13 - 14 May, brings together a feast of the finest Scottish produce and the Mhor Festival, also over the bank holiday at Balquiddir invites you to "come, play, sing, dance, sit, learn, chill". Perfect!
9. Go for a picnic - with a difference
Have you heard about our Picnic Butler? In full Scottish regalia, he will accompany you through the forest, sharing with you his wealth of natural knowledge. At an idyllic picnic spot, he will set before you a hamper of the finest Scottish produce which of course includes Tunnock's tea cakes and tablet. This feast is served up by the butler and washed down with Champagne, Prosecco - or Irn Bru!
10. Stay in a forest cabin
Soak up the Scottish sunshine and linger longer over the barbecue as the days lengthen this month at a cabin in Strathyre or Ardgartan Argyll.
