Such a surprise! Expected just to go to the cottage. How wrong was I? The new centre is amazing with so much for my teenage kids to do. Then the wee hurl in the buggy round to the cottage was great fun. Walked to the Kirk of Alloway too. Fabulous to see. My youngest daughter didn’t want to go home.

Burns cottage and museum in Alloway is one of, if not the best value for money we have had in a long time. The museum was so interesting and the interactive parts were fantastic. Plenty for young children to use as well as adults. Everything was within walking distance. The gardens were beautifully kept and who would have believed that we were standing on a bridge built in 1205.

Great attraction a great place to learn about this famous poet. There is a lot to do and see within easy walking distance. The new National Trust museum is really well worth. While you are here another great is Culzean Castle, about 12 miles away. A beautiful Castle on a cliff top where Eisenhower spent time planning the D Day landings

I was born in Drongan but live in Essex now. My family still live in Ayr and it is good to see that it is still top notch.

I thought the camp and the staff at the camp were extremely good. The staff could not do enough to help you. They were great. I walk with a stick and find it hard to get around, but they were very understanding and helpful.

I really enjoyed it and would love to do it again. I would travel 10 and a half hours to do it again. It was th highlite of my holiday!!!!

We went to Landmark near Aviemore and this was a brilliant day for the kids and adults. The entrance fee was reasonable and once you were in, it was all free. There was a water slide. A maze, a treetop course for adults and children. A climbing wall, a sky dive and a nature walk where you could see the red squirrels! There were lots of other things to do as well!

Added by Jayne Stephens on 01/09/2011 17:49:41

We went as a family to Adventure Land at Carbridge. It was a fantastic day out, and super value for money at £50 for family of four. High ropes, roller coasters, maize, bamboozelum. A brilliant day out was had by all of us. We ate in the restaurant and found the food to be excellent local produce and good value for money.

Added by Mandy Speed on 30/07/2011 17:19:04

We went on a speed boat with ecoventures in Cromarty, where we were surrounded by Dolphins, it was brilliant! It was a special holiday for me and my five year old daughter as I have secondary breast cancer.

Great day out for the family!

Brilliant day out and great value for money. Birds of Prey were brilliant. £26 for a family of four is well worth the money.

Added by Margaret Howitt on 14/05/2012 20:41:58

Beautiful Castle, lovely grounds and beautiful birds of prey. Would recommend Dunrobin for a great day out.

Added by Paul Chettle on 23/04/2012 18:45:37

Very interesting and very convenient to the holiday site.

Added by Heather Buchanan on 10/10/2011 09:56:38

Love, Love, Love Dunrobin. It’s an amazing Castle full of History and also has stunning gardens with a flacon show!!!! It’s a must see if your near Tain.

Added by Allan D on 29/07/2011 12:43:51

My favourite castle, the setting is amazing, and falconry adds an extra attraction which we all really enjoyed.

Added by Bill Milthorpe on 08/06/2011 21:34:21

Spent the whole day here, it was wonderful. The gardens were immaculate, the house beautiful. Do not miss the falconry, Andy and Liz put on a marvelous display, really informative. Made my sons day to stroke a six week old tawny owl. We finished off with fish & chips from the Trawler on the a9 in Golspie. Fantastic day!

Added by Allan Higgs on 08/06/2011 08:06:21

This is a lovely castle and a great tour with friendly staff. Falconry is fantastic, would recommend a visit for good day out. We all enjoyed it, many thanks.

Beautiful and a great day out.

Historical Fort George
A fine example of defence at Fort George

Fort George is quite simply the finest example of 18th-century military engineering you’ll find anywhere in the British Isles.

This vast garrison fortress was begun in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden (1746), which crushed the final Jacobite Rising.

Brilliant day out for all the family. Staff very welcoming and role playing activities held often. Good cafe with homemade food reasonably priced. Pets welcome although they have to stay out of buildings which is only to be expected. Plenty of room for children to run around in and the possibility of seeing dolphins.

Added by Karen on 26/06/2012 07:31:18

A good afternoon out in the fresh air. We had the bonus of seeing dolphins and the army bagpipers practising for a medal ceremony later in the week.

Added by Margaret Howitt on 14/05/2012 20:43:49

Great day out, huge barracks in beautiful old buildings. Plenty to see all around the area.

Added by A Coverdale on 17/08/2011 20:16:39

Fabulous fully complete Fort - you don't fully appreciate the size until you get inside. Great for a family visit - and if you get lucky you will see the Dolphins in th Moray Firth from the fort wall. Highly recommended.

Added by Mairi Leitch on 05/08/2011 09:11:36

A great way for children to learn about some history that they can enjoy and with the chance to see some real soldiers my boys were really excited. Lovely areas to have a picnic with lovely views over the sea.

Added by Bill Milthorpe on 08/06/2011 21:38:17

If you get the weather, this is a smashing place to visit. It’s big, allow yourself plenty of time. You’ll even see real soldiers, it is an operational barracks.

Added by Michelle on 18/09/2011 10:12:01

Stunning scenery looking out over the Firth and a lovely area. Fort looks great in the aerial pictures but it’s hard to see this when you're there. It’s very vast and informative, probably not ideal for children who like running around playing and it took us about 4 hours to get round it properly. Good value for money though and you get to see so much over so many years from pre WW1 to recent.
