Our best and long-lasting memories are made on family holidays.  However, travelling with children of all ages (or older relatives) is as challenging as it is utterly rewarding.

We will therefore tailor your tour to ensure that everyone in your group is catered for. 

We have properly fitted car seats for all ages of children and can provide a pushchair and bottle warmer. 

We even have an emergency stash of nappies (as we remember that day we forgot to lift the changing bag when we went out for the day!)

We will work with you to get a bespoke itinerary for your group.

So what would your family like to do?

  • Get some sea air – explore beautiful beaches, go hunting for crabs in rock pools, take a boat trip, discover the traditional fishing harbours or walk out to a tidal island
  • Sample our local produce – go berry picking in the summer months, see how cheese is made, visit a distillery (some of the distilleries will allow children to do the tour depending on their age, if not, we can entertain them with a wee game of football or a scavenger hunt in the distillery grounds while the adults do the tour)
  • Family friendly cookery lesson – be wowed by the stunning Colstoun stately home and the delightful staff at their cookery school. As a family you can forage in the grounds for your ingredients (or have them handed to you on a plate!) and work together to create a lovely picnic or afternoon tea which you can take outside and eat on the lawn. There’s plenty of room in their 2000-acre grounds to explore and walk off your feast.
  • Burn off some energy with an activity – from toddlers to teenagers there’s some tremendous ways to use up some of that pent-up energy. Outdoors we could do snow tubing, ropes courses, farm parks or wake boarding and indoors we could take you rock climbing or trampolining to name just a few. Don’t worry there’s always a café nearby for those not feeling quite so adventurous!
  • Discover the hidden history of greater Edinburgh area – from castles to stately homes, or beautiful chapels to the battlefields of Bannockburn
  • Take in a museum – there are some original and interactive museums in the area covering everything from coal mining to the secret bunker from the cold war
  • Follow in the footsteps of JK Rowling - explore the sights of Edinburgh that were the inspiration for the Harry Potter books and films

Simply let us know what you fancy and we’ll take you out for a special day, so you can make the absolute best of your trip to Scotland.
