- Ideas for toddler-friendly first Highlands trip
A friend is thinking of going up to the Highlands in June, with her fella and their two-year old son. They’re visiting family in Glasgow and wanting to go from there up into the Highlands for four/five days, coming back to Edinburgh.
They’re not massively outdoorsy but I’m sure they’d happily do low-level family-friendly walks and stuff. I think they want to book a cottage or similar somewhere rather than be moving around too much. Any ideas for somewhere to base themselves and things that will allow the grown-ups to experience that part of the world for the first time, but also keep Junior entertained?Posted 1 month agoscotroutesMember
Landmark is good. A playpark but outdoorsy.
Feed the reindeer.
Big soft play area at Coylumbridge.
Canoe hire at Loch Morlich or Loch Insh.
Tube slide at Cairngorm.
Short drive to Moray Firth for extensive seaside beaches/seals
Slightly longer drive to dolphin spotting on the Black Isle.
I could go on…Posted 1 month agomoonsaballoonSubscriber
We had a brilliant week staying in Carrbridge in a chalet type thing in a hotel garden right next to the landmark adventure park, our then 4 year old loved it. Landmark is excellent, zoo was great and we did a fair bit of riding with the boy on the tag along, the woods being Carrbridge have excellent easy going paths and are pretty flat so perfect for families.
Full disclosure we had brilliant weather which obviously helps.Posted 1 month ago
