Have you ever wondered why the Dalmeny Estate, near South Queensferry, never promote the day of their show of snowdrops on Mons Hill far in advance. ‘We don’t set the date for Snowdrop Day until two weeks before,’ says the administrator, Linda Edgar. ‘It all depends on when the snowdrops come through, and we monitor the hill daily from the beginning of February. There isn’t anything else to see that day except the park itself, but we do refreshments in our tearoom.’
South Queensferry, EH30 9TQ (0131-331 1888; www.dalmeny.co.uk). Eight miles west of Edinburgh. For opening times, telephone or visit the website
