I can’t believe it’s snowdrop time of year again – as soon as these beautiful white plants start flowering it really makes it feel as if spring is just around the corner.
Although we will have lots of snowdrops around the woods and lawns at Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages, there’s nothing quite like getting out and about on a Sunday and taking a trip over to Logan Botanic Garden where the displays and drifts of these delicate winter flowers never fail to disappoint.
Logan Botanic Garden is open on Sundays throughout February from 10am to 4pm and from 1st March, the Gardens will be open every day. I’m very much looking forward to our own visit there to see the swathes of snowdrops. It’s not just Galanthus, to give them their Latin name, early flowering Camellias and Rhododendrons provide lots of colour too at this time of year.
Enjoy the Scottish snowdrops in Style at Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages both in our own woods and at Logan Botanic Garden with prices from £205 for a three-night stay at Stables Cottage (sleeps 4). Additionally, you can see the swathes of snowdrops and spring bulbs at nearby Castle Kennedy Gardens which is open weekends during February and March for the Scottish Snowdrop Festival and in the woods at Glenwhan Gardens. Glenwhan Gardens are open daily at this time of year with an honesty box and dogs on a lead are welcome.
