Designed with adventure-seeking families in mind, we've combined exhilarating experiences with family-friendly accommodation in the West of Scotland.

We’ve poured years of experience into this exciting new Scotland family holiday itinerary, featuring a host of fun experiences for kids of all ages.

Begin your adventure on and around the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond just a short hop from Glasgow, with four nights at a cosseting lochside inn. Spend time exploring the natural wonders within walking distance, in the nearby forest and on the sparkling waters of the loch, with a thrilling 4×4 escapade a distinct highlight as well as a spot of canoeing. Then head north through vast scenery on your way to port at Oban for a fun ferry crossing to the magnificent Isle of Mull, home to some of Scotland’s most accessible wildlife, from soaring eagles to frolicking dolphins. Round off your family adventure with a short trip to the jewel-like island of Iona thrown in for good measure.

As with any of our self-drive trips, this Scottish family adventure holiday can be tailored to suit your specific wishes and interests – please just let us know.
