Kinblethmont House is one of 12 new venues across the country participating in the Scottish Snowdrop Festival 2015.

The popular outdoor festival is now bloom, offering visitors the chance to see spring snowdrops carpeting the grounds of gardens across Angus and Dundee.

Running until March 15, over 60 properties will offer beautiful displays of snowdrops in stunning natural settings, some opened exclusively for the event. The collections are set among outdoor sculptures, ancient trees and abbeys, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walks.

The festival, now in its ninth year, reminds people of the beauty of Scotland in the winter months and is a welcome boost for gardens, woodlands and the surrounding tourism businesses during a traditionally quieter period.

Jim Clarkson, VisitScotland regional partnerships director, said: “I’m delighted to hear that this year Kinblethmont House will be part of the Dundee and Angus programme.

“The Scottish Snowdrop Festival is great to kick off the new year, inspiring visitors to come and experience the breathtaking beauty of the region outwith the busier holiday season.

“With over 60 properties taking part, the Festival has grown tremendously over the years and offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy one of the natural highlights of the spring calendar.”
