Things to do with a toddler on the way to Aviemore
Fish ladder/dam at Pitlochry? There used to be a wee fairground at pitlochry too, not sure if its still on the go.
There is a deer park near Aberfeldy – mind you last time i was there they didn’t have any deer on show they were pregnant.
Tisos soft play is ok, but its pricey if you are just going for 20mins to have a coffee.Posted 4 years ago
Hi all,Posted 4 years ago
We are heading to Aviemore next weekend for a few days, and wondered if there are any things to do to break up the journey on the way up the A9? Stop offs with anything interesting for the wee one would be good. Any suggestions or experiences much appreciated 🙂mcmoonterMember
The cafe north of Bruar is at Ralia.
I’d hang on and stop for tea and cake at the Inschriach Nursery. The kids will love the overlook to the squirrels, pine marten and birds.
A walk up through the Hermitage to Ossian’s Hall is good for a stretch of the legs too.
Escape Route in Pitlochry has good coffee.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
No, not the Ralia cafe. The Perthshire Visitor Centre just on the B867 turnoff for Bankfoot:
It’s a few yards off the A9 but on the slower A road and has a cafe with decent food and drink and an outside decked area where parents can watch their little darlings in the play area. We always used to pitstop there when going to Aviemore because it’s convenient, safe and just the right distance beyond Perth.

We did 5hours each way to Wales and back with a 1 year old and a 4 year old last week. We spent £80 on a 2screen alba in car dvd player. Money well spent minimal complaining in both directions.
What it highlighted was just how poo motorway services are for young kids. We took the view that better to nail the journey with a 15-20minute stop every 1.5hours or so and forget trying to make it fun for the boys.
Sorry not much specific help there.Posted 4 years ago
