A Day Out with ScotRail - Kids For a Quid {AD}

ScotRails Kids For a Quid

ScotRail’s new campaign is offering off-peak kids train travel for just £1 this includes the weekend and school holidays- amazing right?! Normally when we find ‘great deals’ they can be quite restrictive not allowing you to use them at weekends, between certain times or unless you are also bringing your pet cat* Also good news if you’re a commuter and already have a rail pass as you can get this deal using your pass too!

*this is a totally exaggerated point

With your kids train ticket one child can gain free entry into some top days out across Scotland - I’ll pop a little link here so you can check out all the great places that you can use it.

The best Country Parks Central Scotland

Our favourite country parks and arguably the best country parks in Central Scotland, perfect for a family day out during the school holidays.

What do you look for in a good country park? Here’s what I look for;

Nice scenery, woodland, rivers and wildlife

Good walking routes, that aren’t too long for little legs but long enough that I feel accomplished!!

A good play area for different ages

Free to visit

Car parking

Are you looking for a good family day out in Stirlingshire? Well, you’ve came to the right place!

Days out are my JAM!

Here you’ll find the some of my favourite places to visit with my three children. I’ve tried to keep it varied with places that are free, suitable for all ages and most of all fun for everyone!

I’ll briefly describe each place, if theres a cost, if its dog friendly, how long you could typically spend there, if it has a cafe and toilets etc. I’ll also share the main reason we choose to visit!

To help out I’ve added a quick look at each place with, in my opinion, the best features in a nutshell.

We’re very lucky to live in a place where there are so many cool landmarks to visit.
