10 family days out in Scotland you can’t miss!

10 family days out in Scotland you can’t miss!

Wondering where to take the kids this summer? There are some fantastic family days out right on your doorstep – from historic New Lanark to zoos & pools!

 

1. New Lanark World Heritage Site

The historic village of New Lanark is the perfect location for a family day out this summer! There’s so much on offer you could easily spend a full day here – from exploring our award-winning Visitor Centre to enjoying a woodland walk to see the famous three ‘Falls of Clyde’ waterfalls!

New Lanark is a cotton-spinning mill village which was founded in 1785 by David Dale & Richard Arkwright. Over 200 years later the village has been recognised as one of Scotland’s 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites of ‘outstanding universal significance’.

The New Lanark Visitor Centre is open 7 days a week, and during the summer holidays we run a programme of craft workshops and daily guided tours. UK Tax payers can ‘GiftAid’ their Visitor Centre admission making it valid for a whole year – meaning you can visit again and again!
