With the sun shining and the birds chirping, Kilmartin Museum opened its garden to youngsters ready to celebrate Easter.

Kilmartin Museum teamed up with Heart of Argyll Wildlife for ‘Eggs or not’, an afternoon of Easter activities including a quiz, ring toss, an egg hunt, egg painting, ‘eggcellent eggsperiments’ and more.

All the activities had a connection to nature or had an educational slant, leaving children of all ages curious and entertained.

One prizewinning youngster guessed the number of tadpoles in the tank and got to go home with a toy beluga whale for guessing correctly.

Heart of Argyll Wildlife environmental interpretation officer Pete Creech said: ‘We had a very successful day. Around 50 people took part painting eggs, making nests, carrying out egg experiments and guessing the number of tadpoles. It was lots of fun.’
