Scottish rural wishes for spring '14

Jump to last reply

Yay! My sister wishes to 'baptize' her new passport with a trip across the ocean.

We know the dates--middle of April 2014-- and I've realized Sunday the 20th will be Easter, but that actually gives us a potential itinerary item: Musselburgh Racecourse had Easter events this year, so this seems a safe assumption for next year, too.

She's not sure what she'd like to see, so I've set her the task of browsing http://www.visitscotland.com/ to find things that catch her fancy.

Meanwhile, I'll be digging for things to see and/or do related to topics that do interest her. They're not typical tourist guide items, so if anyone can point to April events or sights to visit with connections to these topics, many thanks!

border collies
working dog trials
shetland ponies
horses
working farms (present day, not likely the Museum of Rural Life, though I will point that one out to her)
