Take advantage of Scotland’s many family attractions for a fantastic family holiday in Scotland.

There are so many great ideas for family days out in Scotland to ensure you have a fun packed family holiday and some of the attractions happen to be free too.

Animal lovers can visit zoos, wildlife parks and aquariums. Castles bring Scotland’s history to life and the exhibits at science centres will fill you with wonder. The list of family attractions across Scotland is endless.

Free attractions include the Riverside Museum in Glasgow and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. You can also take advantage of family passes and other membership schemes to make your family holiday in Scotland tremendous value for money.

As a family you can get admission to certain attractions for one fixed price and incentives such as the Edinburgh Pass are well worth considering. Membership of Edinburgh Zoo also gets you into the Highland Wildlife Park.

When the children get hungry you’ll want to find a good place to eat and across the country there is a great selection of family friendly accommodation for you to consider. Self-catering is always a good option.
