Events include a Teddy bear Picnic where parents, little ones and their favourite teddies are invited to join the Rangers for a fun afternoon on Sunday 26 May.
For £2 per child, visitors can enjoy games, stories, music and, of course, a picnic in the picturesque grounds of Drumlanrig from 11am-1pm. Alternatively, on Sunday 2 June visitors are invited to see the world through the eyes of a bug at the Life in the Undergrowth event at no additional cost.

Budding explorers can set off on a quest through the estate anytime between 11am and 4pm by following an activity sheet available from the castle shop for just 30p each.
