Family holidays in Scotland

There are so many great ideas to ensure you have a fun-packed family holiday, including days out at top attractions, enjoying outdoor activities, great places to eat and using family-friendly places to stay.

The list of things to do on a family day out in Scotland is endless. Animal lovers can visit wildlife attractions such as zoos, wildlife parks and aquariums. Castles and historic buildings bring Scotland’s history to life and the exhibits at science centres will fill you with wonder.

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. Membership of Edinburgh Zoo also gets you into the Highland Wildlife Park.

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