Scottish Highlands Child Friendly
Family holidays create memories for young and old alike, and provide wonderful opportunities for bonding and for a child’s education. The Scottish Highlands offer many types of child-friendly accommodation, including hotels, self-catering, holiday parks, and campsites. To ensure your family has a wonderful experience, choose a child- or family-friendly accommodation in the Scottish Highlands and let everyone relax. Many child-friendly accommodations provide group activities for children of all ages, playgrounds, and indoor activity centres. As well, you can expect child-friendly cuisine and portions on the menu in any of the restaurants and cafes. Rooms will be child-safe, and a variety of sleeping options are usually provided, such as bunk beds, pull-out beds, and cots, or a combination of single and double beds.
Child-friendly hotels have the advantage of being able to offer unique experiences for the little ones. For example, there are junior golf lessons available at venues like Gleneagles. Some hotels provide special swimming pools and even swim lessons for 12 year olds and under. Other hotels run special kids’ clubs which are jam-packed with both indoor and outdoor activities. Depending upon your choice of child-friendly hotel accommodation, your young one could experience adventure playgrounds, petting zoos, sporting lessons, cookery lessons, arts and crafts sessions, games, supervised beach play, and a wealth of other delights designed especially for the enjoyment and safety of your child.
Family-friendly holiday parks will also provide a variety of activities for your child, and along with hotels, they can provide things like baby monitoring services, child-safe furniture and beds, and laundry services. Chances are you will also find enjoyable activities for the whole family—pony trekking, fishing, or exploring nearby castles and historic sites, to name a few. Holiday park accommodation—lodges, chalets, cottages, and the like—will also offer a bit more privacy and freedom than a more traditional hotel. As well, you won’t have to worry if the walls are too thin between your family room and the neighbouring guest!
Campgrounds and caravan sites are another option for families travelling with children. Many places will have static caravans you can rent, or bring your own tent or camper. Child-friendly campsites and caravan parks usually offer an abundance of planned activities as well as excellent playground facilities, laundries, a camp store, and even child-minding services. These types of accommodation provide a low-key, laid-back travel option, and are especially good for those on a budget.
Child-friendly properties are aware of the unique needs of those travelling with children and babies, and they understand that bringing the whole family along can be a bit more cumbersome than adult-only travel. Therefore, you can expect your hosts and their accommodation to take this to heart. You will find that child- and family-friendly accommodation is often like a “home from home” atmosphere, allowing your whole family to rest and relax. Child-friendly accommodation generally offers the perfect blend of children’s and family activities along with down time and a chance to unwind. As well, family vacations are a great opportunity to try new adventures together. Your accommodation will either provide or connect you with all kinds of fun activities for families like quad biking, skiing, water sports, fishing, horseback riding, paintballing, or even zorbing.
Whether you desire a self-catering holiday house or cottage, a holiday park with chalets, cabins, or lodges, a campsite or caravan, or a hotel, there is sure to be a plethora of child-friendly alternatives all throughout the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Bring the kids along for a wonderful experience and create those special family memories on your next Scottish Highlands holiday!
