For all ages
Written by Luxury Scotland
At Luxury Scotland we are eager to share the splendour of this country with the world, especially younger generations. We encourage you to bring your family here for a holiday that will exceed expectations.
The award-winning team at Torridon Activities have earned their status as one of Scotland’s best adventure organisers. They will make sure that you and your family experience the best of the region. From archery to coasteering, mountain biking to gorge scrambling, the activity programme is packed with options for everyone – regardless of your endurance or physical ability. Or, if you would prefer to leave the kids to the athletic pursuits, enquire about the Morgan Car Experience, a once-in-a-lifetime offer for you to delight in zigzagging through the Highlands in one of the world’s most iconic classic cars.
The ideal base for any Highlands adventure you can think of, guests at Glencoe House are spoiled with opportunities for good fun in every direction. There are endless walking, climbing and mountain biking trails, and the picturesque scenery provides an idyllic backdrop for a family walk. You might not know it, but there are beaches in the region as well, and wildlife tours by Land Rover or boat that leave right from their front door, making it easy to coordinate for little ones. There are plenty of cultural sites to visit too, like the Glenfinnan monument of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Arduaine Gardens near Oban.
It makes sense that Cromlix House, owned by US Open, Olympic and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, would have a wide range of sports and activities on site. There is fittingly enough a tennis court in Wimbledon colours, and plenty of on-site activities available too such as garden games, fishing, archery, snooker and board games. For older children (and kids at heart), quad biking and 4X4 off-road driving can be arranged, as well as a mini Highland games, for the ultimate friendly competition.
Considered by guests as a playground for all ages on 850 acres of countryside, family breaks at Gleneagles are dynamic and guaranteed to be fun for all. There are dedicated family experiences including pitch ‘n’ putt competitions, Segway tours and a safari with an off-road driving instructor to take you out into Perthshire to discover the stunning scenery and wildlife. Unique activities include falconry, ferret racing, off-road driving, shooting, football, horse riding at the Gleneagles Equestrian School and so much more, for all age groups. Facilities include Little Glen, the fully supervised crèche, The Den, which is an unsupervised games room and play area for older kids, and also family accommodation with room for everyone.
There is hardly any chance of being bored in Scotland, there are too many mountains to climb, adventures to be had and sites to explore. Consider Scotland this summer for a family holiday that all of you will enjoy.
