We were asked along to the preview night of The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry and we had the best time. Spectacular visuals, wonderful show!
There’s something special about a good waterfall. Here are some of our favourites for a great day out. Your next adventure awaits!
A list of wide open spaces where you can explore and take a big deep breath away from the city. Country Parks within an hour of Glasgow.
Cloybank Farm has some wonderfully friendly animals. They’re always waiting for the next bag of food to come along, especially the llamas and goats. It’s a great wee place to see farm animals up close.
I needed some motivation to get us spending time outside, so a few weeks ago I decided I was going to try to visit every park in Glasgow over the next few months. And I made a big list of every park in Glasgow!
Cuningar Loop is a really pretty park, and will be even prettier as it continues to grow. The whole place is one big adventure, and there is tons to do. My kids adore it here. It’s well worth a visit!
We have just started coming back to Dawsholm Park in the past weeks as lockdown has eased a bit, and we all absolutely love this park. It has open meadow spaces, massive trees, a bit of river to splash in and lots of little hidden bits to explore. It’s such an underrated park and the kids really feel like they’re on an adventure here. Great fun.
Easy dinners at IKEA are the way forward. The kids love it, and now there are plant based & eco-friendly options for everyone!
Everyone likes free stuff, don’t they? Well kids can get in free to a bunch of big attractions with Scotrail! Here’s how & some suggested places to visit!
The little lady and I had a wee mummy daughter date & went along to iMOTO X, Europe’s biggest indoor electric motorbike track. We had the BEST time!
This latest installation at Tramway is truly fantastic. It’s a full on sensory experience; for everyone. Just be aware with young kids that it’s no touching!
The Wallace Monument has beautiful views, height, stairs to climb, interesting exhibits on the way up, lots of history and a really nice wee walk to get there and back. We all really enjoyed it.
I LOVE a beach trip. I’m not really fussed about it being sunny to go to the beach but since it currently is that fantastically sunny bit of Scottish summer, I thought I’d share our faves.
We went to check out Rollerstop a few weeks ago and we all had a fantastic time. The disco was great fun, and the staff were absolutely amazing. Our new favourite place for a rainy day!
This speedboat trip up the Clyde to Krispy Kreme was a special treat for Father’s Day last year. It was exhilarating and we all loved it. The pit stop for doughnuts in the middle was perfect. A brilliant afternoon out!
I went along to some post-natal training sessions with Lynsey, the Mighty Mama coach. Classes focussed on strengthening the pelvic floor and core. Lots of hard work (in a good way) but fun too. Kids can come along as well so no need to find childcare!
Troon Beach is a beautiful place, particularly when the sun is shining. But even when it’s not, there’s an ocean to splash in and all you need is a bucket and spade (and a watering can) and a picnic. Great fun.
Park Lives is back until the 25th of July and there are a whole host of activities on in various parks around Glasgow. We checked out a lovely little Baby Ballet class in Victoria Park and the kids had great fun. See what’s on – it’s all FREE!
If you love cats and don’t have any of your own to pat (or even if you do) then this is the place for you. The food is probably a bit more expensive than I’d like to have paid for it, but the cake was really delicious. The joy that the little lady got from meeting all the lovely cats was totally worth it.
The Loch Lomond Faerie Trail a brilliant way to have a fun day outside in the beautiful Scottish countryside. It’s full of things to see and do and there are puzzles to solve and things to find at each faerie door station. And Luss is such a beautiful place on the banks of Loch Lomond, you could easily make a whole day of it here.
