Why Scotland is the Ideal Family Break Destination

Scotland is a completely unique destination, in that it offers a wide range of holiday opportunities for the whole family to enjoy. After all, there are certainly very few countries which offer not only the chance to enjoy a relaxing family based scenic holiday like Scotland, but also the chance to enjoy superb active trips or visit cultured cities.

To begin with you have big cities such as Edinburgh to explore. No one can fail to enjoy such fascinating attractions as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia. There is also the chance to take the whole family on an open top bus tour of the city, to make sure you don’t miss all the sights.

Similarly, Glasgow makes an entertaining destination for the whole family. The Glasgow Science Centre in particular provides an enthralling educational (and fun) day out for the whole family, and also boasts an IMAX cinema. Glasgow city centre features a wide range of shops and facilities that should appeal to all members of the family, no matter their age or interest.

But Scotland is about much more than just its biggest cities. The west coast and the Highlands has so much to offer on top of the outstanding scenery. It is very easy to find suitable accommodation for the whole family in all kinds of locations. There are lodges, hotels, B&B’s and countless other options as well. This means it doesn’t matter what kind of budget you have to spend – you will always be able to find child friendly accommodation to suit you.

Of course a family break in Scotland isn’t just for entertaining the children. You will all want to enjoy a good break and luckily this is easy to do in Scotland, no matter where you are staying. Most attractions are suitable for all the family, and this means you can enjoy lots of nice days out together.

For example the Landmark Forest Theme Park in the Highlands of Scotland is just one example of somewhere that appeals to kids of all ages – even those who are well into double figures!

In fact, if getting out and about is your kind of holiday, the whole family will enjoy a nature based break in Scotland. Why not stay in a lodge in the middle of the countryside, where you can all enjoy watching out for various birds and other forms of wildlife? Not only do these kinds of family holidays take you away from everyday life at home, they also give you some much needed fresh air and a complete change of scene.

So what kind of Scottish break would be best for your family? Choosing is the hardest part – but enjoying your break is the easiest bit of all.
