The Scotland-wide Hide & Sheep scavenger hunt runs until 14th April. RHASS need your little eggs to help find over 1,900 missing lambs who lost their way. Spot one cuddly toy and it’s all yours. No catch, nada, it’s free. Plus, you might even bag yourself a VIP experience to the Royal Highland Show 2024. Scan the sheep’s QR code to find out if you’re a winner.
