My lovely friend wrote this review of her recent visit to Greenbank Gardens with her toddler and baby. Sounds like a great day out!
We headed along at the weekend, just the two of us, to the Woodland Fairy Experience. It’s a really sweet, well thought out and magical activity for kids. The little lady LOVED it.
We’ve been trying to make the best of some pretty crappy weather lately and ventured out to Whitelee Windfarm in Eaglesham. It’s rugged & picturesque, and the wind turbines are pretty grand up close. They also have a wee cafe for a post-walk warm up.
We had a great time at Culzean Castle & Country Park. They have one of the best playparks we’ve ever been to. There’s so much to do at Culzean and it’s really beautiful too; pretty gardens, swans, forest and a big rocky shoreline. Excellent day out.
New Lanark is a great day out whether you want to spend it indoors or outdoors. The Annie McLeod Experience is something fun and unusual for a rainy day, and the Falls of Clyde Reserve is a lovely place for a walk.
We’d heard that a Gruffalo had been spotted in the woods around Kilmardinny Loch in Bearsden, so last week we thought we’d take a trip out there to see if we could find him. Turns out[…]
We went east today, to see and have a wander around Cuningar Loop, a new Forestry Commission park over in Rutherglen. It’s now officially open (since spring 2016). The Lowdown The project is a Commonwealth Wood, part of the[…]
Despite it only being a 10 minute drive away, I’ve only ever been to Pollok Country Park a few times. If we’re planning on going to a country park, I always kinda forget that Pollok Park is[…]
Guest post coming from me today so here’s a short intro to myself and the kid – Rachel: mummy to my little lad who is two years old, living in Glasgow and having great fun[…]
There’s so much to do at Heads of Ayr Farm Park. There are play areas galore, trampolines, animals to feed, soft play. Great day out. Here’s our review!
There’s plenty green space to run or have a picnic in and little animal lovers will enjoy the children’s zoo. The walks down by the river are lovely too.
We braved the Scottish summer and went to Palacerigg Country Park. Nice little childrens farm and good swing park. Nice walk for dogs. Great little day out.
I’ve been dying to go berry picking for ages. So when a friend suggested we go check out East Yonderton Farm in Renfrew I was ready. We went this morning and had a great time.[…]
We’re at the beach today! Not in the usual sense though. We’re in a giant sandpit (aka the Beach at Riverside) and it’s really nice. It’s been here for a few summers now. But I’ve never[…]
There’s Pollok Park, Chatelherault Park, Mugdock Country Park, Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, Seven Lochs Wetland Park, Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre plus all the city parks and all the other ones I know I’ve forgotten. Let’s[…]
Chatelherault Park is one of my favourite places on earth. Walking through it’s big, beautiful, ancient forest makes me feel like I’ve gone back in time. We go here with our dogs quite a lot,[…]
We checked out Free Wheel North recently. Most people I speak to haven’t heard of it, but it’s a fantastic charity run cycling centre down at Glasgow Green next to the big playparks & climbing[…]
“Children who play outside develop better language skills, are fitter, and have fewer behavioural problems”. Best make the most of the Scottish summer while it lasts…
George Square is always good for a run around if you’re in town & at a loose end! Note: The pigeons are pretty gallus & will definitely follow a toddler around if said toddler has[…]
For her very 1st birthday, we took the little lady to Almond Valley Heritage Centre in Livingston at the weekend. We’ve never taken her to any children’s farms or ‘bigger’ visitor attractions before (I’m not counting Tollcross[…]
