Loch Lomond Faerie Trail

The Loch Lomond Faerie Trail is truly a wonderful day out for families, and a lovely walk through some beautiful countryside.

Ben A’an

The Ben A’an hill walk isn’t an easy stroll, but the views from the top are exceptional and it is a beautiful walk to get there. Take your time and let the kids enjoy it as you go. The juice is most definitely worth the squeeze on this wee gem of a hill.

The Whangie

The Whangie is one of the most kid friendly walks we’ve done in Scotland. The dramatic rock formation is stunning to see and is like a natural playground for kids who like to explore. It’s easy enough for young kids to walk by themselves. A great few hours out!

Ardkinglas Estate

Ardkinglas Estate is a hidden gem on the paths of Loch Fyne. Families will love exploring the woodland, finding fairy houses, following the map to find the Gruffalo at the end of the trail and playing down by the river.

Machrie Moor

This is one of my favourite walks on Arran for families, and not too strenuous for anyone. The Machrie Moor standing stones are beautiful and impressive and honestly, a little bit magical. Highly recommend.
