It’s obvious we love south Scotland, with 4 parks to choose from for your holidays, or holiday home locations. There is so much to see and do, all within beautiful settings! Visit with the kids during 2019 and you can enjoy so much. Take a look at our guide to spending 72 hours in south Scotland to get some tips.
We know how much everyone loves a little bit of fun family competition. So why not take to Foxlake Adventures in Dunbar and have a go at Disc Golf! This fun game involves throwing discs at metal baskets, with whoever getting the discs to land with the fewest throws the winner. ReBoot Disc Golf Course offers an 18-hole family friendly course which is an ideal way to spend the morning.
Following the adventures at ReBoot, you could head to East Links Family Park and enjoy everything they have got to offer. From visiting farm animals to go karting, tractor rides, water wars, trampolines and a maze to get yourselves lost in! The park has a café on site for you to enjoy a bite to eat and you can enjoy a discount for the park with a voucher available in Reception at our south Scottish holiday parks.
Finally, why not wind down with a nice walk along Belhaven Bay beach and visit the Bridge to Nowhere? A must see for most visitors to the area. At high tide, the bridge looks to be stranded in the middle of the sea.
During your second day of adventures why not take a trip towards the Scottish Borders and enjoy a day of culture. Take to Paxton House and enjoy the family trails, play areas, zip wires and the abundance of great activities they hold throughout the year. There’s so much to see and do there, and kids under 16 go free too.
You can then stop by Chain Bridge Honey Farm and taste honey from the local honeybees. There’s a museum within the visitor’s centre to learn about the lifecycle of the honeybee and the history of beekeeping. Watch the honeybees work and enjoy lunch in a vintage double-decker bus!
Making the final stop of the day on the way back to park you could swing by St Abbs nature reserve. Take in the breathtaking views, enjoy one of many walking routes and see what wildlife you can spot!
On the final day head north and enjoy everything there is to see and in East Lothian. Close to Dunbar you can find Archerfield Walled Gardens. Featuring everything from a farm shop, microbrewery and café to a fairy trail which will whisk any fairy-tale fans to a magical world.
Next, you can stop by the National Museum of flight and head off on a journey of discovery. Exploring the history of aviation from World War One to the present day, this museum features interactive displays and supersonic experiences for any visitor. Aircraft on display include a Red Arrows hawk and a Concorde G-BOAA!
Finally, we recommend heading out to the coast and seeing what amazing birds you can spot at the Scottish Seabird Centre. With interactive cameras looking out towards the wildlife on the Firth of Forth islands, a wildlife theatre, soft play and a kids corner dedicated to learning more about marine life through toys and books, the centre is a hit for those young and old. Will you spot Sammy the Seal on the Dunbar Zone camera? How many Puffins can you count on the Ilse of May Zone camera? Visit the centre and find out.
