Places to take the kids at Easter time, Central Scotland

The Glen, Westquarter, Falkirk

The school holidays are upon us so you’re probably looking for places to take the kids at Easter time. There are so many amazing places around us (Central Scotland).

I’m trying to be more realistic with myself on how much we can actually do. Previous holidays/breaks I’ve planned so much and felt defeated when we couldn’t do it all!

This is the last big break before Summer so I would really like to be able to relax for some of it and enjoy slower days too.

We’ll be doing work in the garden and on the chicken coop in attempt to get it looking tidier!!

Here’s some of the places we hope to visit.

  • Glasgow Science Centre

    We’ve only been here maybe twice before but there is SO much to see and do!

  • Camera Obscura

    We’ve never been here but it’s always on the list - maybe this break we’ll get there?

  • Culzean Castle

    The play park here looks incredible, I hear nothing but good things but its a long journey which is why we’ve never managed before

  • East Neuk beaches

    In my humble opinion the East Neuk has some of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland (bar West Coast Scotland - check them out here)

  • Dalkeith Country Park

    Not going to lie, I really want to try out their new Sky Maze. The kids are welcome to join me!

  • Visit a Zoo (Edinburgh or Five Sisters)

    We’ve not been to Edinburgh Zoo since the lantern event we went to December 2017. We have an annual pass for Five Sisters so we visit regularly.

  • Polmont Ski Centre

    We visit here every holiday so Eilidh can make use of the play scheme skiing and have fun tubing.


Our Easter Bucketlist

  1. Have a lazy morning

  5. Make fairy potions {warm water with bubbles, glitter and flower petals}

  6. A day of exploring somewhere new

  7. A day of not using the car #eco

  8. Go on the train

  9. Scavenger hunt in the woods (find our one at the bottom)

Have you got plans for Easter or do you just wing it?

Whatever you get up to lets just pray the weather is on our side as sunshine makes everything more enjoyable right?
