Riverside museum in Glasgow should be a treat for him.
Walk up Conic Hill (majestic view for the relatively small amount of effort required) if the weather’s good.
Wander around Mugdock country park? There’s a few castle ruins, small lochs, old gun emplacements and you might spot some wildlife (although I’m usually there when it’s quiet). The cafe is pretty cheap and close to the adventure playgrounds too.Posted 4 years agochrissyboyMember
Got a week off with my little boy in August – the bank holiday week. We’re staying with my brother in Blantyre for a couple of nights, and have lined up taking him to Edinburgh Zoo to see the Pandas and Pengys. What else should I do with him on the other day? He’s 7 in December, likes outdoor stuff, animals, cars etc.
Obviously if any of you are in the same predicament but coming to Durham I can recommend Beamish, the coast at Seaburn, Alnwick Gardens, etc 🙂
Thanks in advance!Posted 4 years agodaviegSubscriber
+1 for the Riverside Museum which is the fantastic new building housing transport museum. It is free to get in, and they have the Tall Ship moored there too, which is also free to get on too. Danny MacCaskill, Graeme Obree and Chris Boardman’s Lotus bikes are amongst the exhibits.
You can easily spend the best part of a day there, and the restaurant is great too. If you enjoy it, do leave a good donation, to support the fantastic work the museum does.
You could combine this with a nice stroll through Kelvingrove Park up into the Botanic Gardens. Or take a bus tour and jump off at the Riverside museum.Posted 4 years ago

waverly is not a bad idea. But watch out on the early friday evening sailings.. it can turn into a proper booze cruise.Posted 4 years ago
any evening cruise or the long day to Ireland probably best avoided with a kid – daytime on the Clyde is ok though. Plus a visit to the public lavvies in Rothesay is a mustIAMember
Inchcolm is further out than the one by the bridge. Get there on the maid of the forth from south queensferry:Posted 4 years agotheblackmountMember
Kelvingrove Museum (within spitting distance of the Science Centre and Transport Museum)Also the Imax cinema and Tall ship adjacent to both of these)Botanic Gardens near also…
The Waverley’s a far better shout than the Inchcolm gig tbh.
Blairdrummond / Go Ape @ Aberfoyle. And sticking with the boat theme you could add the Sir Walter Scott @ Loch Katrine.Posted 4 years ago
