Scotland is a great place to visit at any time of year. In January Scots celebrate the birth of their national bard Robert Burns with a cosy supper and a wee dram. Swathes of snowdrops can be seen during the February half-term, while Easter eggs will be hunted at country estates across Scotland during the spring school holidays.
In autumn seasonal sights include the migration of birds before winter brings an array of bright, festive events during the Christmas break. On 31 December people from around the world send off the year with a rendition of Auld Lang Syne at Hogmanay.
