August's festival fun might be over for another year but across the country things are starting to happen again, here's our top picks to make the most out of your weekend...

Visit the V&A Dundee

V&A Dundee

Three and a half years in the making, the V&A Dundee officially opened last weekend and it's a great day out. It's fab to have a dedicated design museum in Scotland with fantastic free exhibitions and a theatre set in the form of a giant pop-up book!

Have a good belly laugh at the Festival Theatre

Sarah Millican Control Enthusiast

Funny, frank and unapologetically filthy, you'll know her face from talking about cake and cats on the telly. Catch the hilarious Sarah Millican and her Control Enthusiast show on Saturday 22 and Sunday 24 September at the Festival Theatre.

Tickets available at capitaltheatres.com

Enjoy a mate date at Twenty Princes St

Twenty Princes St

Stuck for where to do lunch? Our advice: pick a pal and head to Twenty Princes St where you can get two mains and two drinks for just £22. The offer usually runs Monday - Thursday, 12-6 and Friday till 4pm but it's been made available on Saturdays too throughout September making it the perfect pick-me-up if you're flagging on Princes St. Available until 4pm, snap it up while you still can! Preview the menu HERE.

Party at Skye Live

Skye Live

It's a long journey, but it's well worth making for one of the most distinctive and scenic festivals in Scotland. On a small park sticking out into the bay at Portree, Isle of Skye, expect a fusion of electronic and more traditional sounds, including Vessels, Pictish Trail, Denis Sulta and Or:La.
