- Wherever you chose a Holiday Park in Scotland you can be sure there will be some spectacular scenery nearby with wild and wonderful landscapes, lochs and castles, islands and mountains. Take a boat trip and try spotting the monster at Loch Ness, ride on the Harry Potter steam train over the Glenfinnian viaduct along the lochs to Mallaig, or take a gondola ride up Aonach Tor for spectacular views of Ben Nevis.
- As well having some amazing historical sights, Edinburgh and Glasgow have some top class family attractions. Take the children for a spectacular view of the city of Edinburgh from Camera Obscura
, or introduce them painlessly to the world of art at The National Gallery of Scotland
. The recently restored Kelvingrove Museum
in Glasgow will be a sure hit for the whole family and the Glasgow Science Centre
is a fascinating place to spend a rainy day. The younger ones in the family will just love a visit to Storybook Glen
with fairytale characters and beautiful gardens.
- Pollok Country Park
just outside Glasgow was voted Europe’s Best Park in 2008. Go for a day out and you will find out why! Craig Highland Farm

in Dundee has woodlands, a wildlife centre, a family fun fair and wonderful adventure playgrounds.
