Squeeze every last drop out of the weekend by hitting up one of these recommendations. From festival fun for all the family to shopping for a good cause, summer is officially our favourite time of year

Shop for a good cause

Join fashion and lifestyle blogger Amy, also known as 'The Little Magpie' as she sells her wardrobe of goodies to raise money for SAMH. With clothes, shoes, accessories, make-up and more there will be lots of style up for grabs. Get there early for an exclusive goodie bag and chance to enter a luxury raffle too. Tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.co.uk.

Party in the forest

An eclectic and distinctly child-friendly festival which is set in a glen with its own castle, play areas and small farm, the music at Kelburn happens alongside circus, cabaret and alfesco artworks sited around the Neverending Glen. The emphasis is on local bands during the day and more dance-based artists at night, including Goldie and A Guy Called Gerald.

Kelburn Castle, near Largs. Get your tickets at kelburngardenparty.com
