Drone shots have captured Scotland’s biggest maze as it prepares to open to the public after coronavirus restrictions were eased across the country.
Planted with 1500 Leylandi Cyprus trees in 1981, Traquair Maze, near Innerleithen in the Borders, is the largest hedged maze in Scotland covering over half an acre.
It suffered a harsh winter in 1983 and it was decided it would be replanted with hardier beech trees which has added colour to the maze.
The popular spot, which usually attracts visitors all year, has been closed due the pandemic, but staff are getting ready to reopen the maze to the public on May 1.
Visitors must reach four sub centres before reaching the centre of the maze.
It was designed by Traquair craft worker, John Schofield, and has an intriguing layout with no dead ends.
