NATURE-LOVERS can escape the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and enjoy a winter walk around Ness Gardens.

This weekend children visiting the attraction will be able to decorate pine cones, design table decorations and use recycled materials to make Christmas decorations to take home.

The garden trail will lead visitors to meet Father Christmas in his grotto and receive an early Christmas present on Sunday.

If you need to do any last-minute Christmas shopping, the gift shop has had a makeover and is packed with stocking fillers and gifts for the garden-lover.
