Rugged, mysterious and charming, Scotland has no end of things to do, especially for children. From wildlife parks to sightseeing, the kids will never grow bored and what better way to do it than in a VW camper van. Down below are a few ideas on where to take your kids this new year in Scotland.
Highland Wildlife Park
This wildlife park houses some unusual creatures, such as red pandas and Arctic foxes. You are given the option to explore the main reserve, which is the perfect opportunity to drive your camper van and experience comfort while your children can marvel at the incredible animals. You then get the chance to explore the rest of the park on foot but make sure to bring a coat as it can be quite cold in Scotland this time of year.
Blair Castle is located in a stunning landscape, with great views that can be appreciated whilst driving your VW camper van. There are a number of activities to entertain the whole family and a children's colouring area within the Treasure Room, where the kids can get creative and draw some of the things they have seen in the castle. The grounds are also worth exploring, which feature a ruined kirk, a woodland grove and a sculpture trail.
Children love the beach and this one is no exception. The beautiful Dornoch Beach allows you some quiet time while the kids go off to play in the sand or you could visit Dornoch itself as it's a fascinating town with a striking cathedral. If you find it's too cold to go onto the beach, then just sitting in your camper van while watching the waves come in is magical enough, and why not take some photographs to remember the holiday you had together?
