Family Fun in Scotland
Family days out in Scotland are easy to find with a whole range of attractions, with a variety of themes, catering for the diverse needs of all age groups. Traditionally, Scotland for children used to often mean a trip to the zoo, and this is still a popular choice, with places like Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park drawing large numbers of visitors. The wildlife park choice is further widened by aquariums and there are several options for a day out with children here, including Deep Sea World at North Queensferry.
The countryside for kids is a good place to let off steam, hence the development of a number of farm parks, often where adventure playgrounds are blended with just a hint of countryside education, for example at Cream o Galloway. The twin aims of environmental awareness as well as a fun day out are a special characteristic of a number of family attractions in Scotland, notably at Landmark, in Carrbridge.
Overall, the choice for families ranges from traditional funfairs, such as Codona’s Amusement Park, an all-year attraction in Aberdeen, to the very latest cutting-edge technology and science, on view at hands-on – and still fun – science centres, of which Sensation in Dundee is a good example.
