4th April – 20th April Easter weekend 10th – 13th April
Throughout the Easter school break, the farm is alive with the cheeps and bleats of baby animals, who will be introduced to you at handling and encounter sessions. Grab your clue sheet, sharpen your pencil, and tear around the farm collecting clues on the springtime trail. Keep a look out for hidden eggs that might win you a treat. In the craft area you can make masks and other springtime decorations. There will be still further special attractions over the four days of Easter (10th to the 13th April), including our famous plastic duck race along the mill lade.

Event details
It’s sometimes tricky to find the perfect thing to do with kids on Easter weekend in and around Edinburgh. We are so tempted to say we’ve cracked it (eek we just did). But we really have. Aside from exploring Fort Douglas with its Sky Maze, its Zip Wires, its scramble nets and slides – kids and their grown-ups will enjoy a real Easter adventure at Fort Douglas.

Easter Bunny Photo Opportunities
Our Easter Weekend in Fort Douglas includes a photo-opp with our giant Easter bunny, Duggie! Kids (and many adults) love him. He’ll be around at the following times in Fort Douglas so you can get your own pic with him: 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm. FREE with entry.

Join our Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter Bunny and his band of merry helpers are hiding a number of rubber eggs throughout Fort Douglas from 10am to 4pm. Once found, bring them to us to eggs-change them (yes, we went there) for a small Cadbury’s creme egg. Yummy. FREE with entry.
