Other destinations for family vacations
Scotland is perhaps the country in Great Britain that appeals most to children's imaginations.
Between monster hunting in the famous Scottish lake of Loch Ness, and ghost hunting in the many majestic castles and manor houses, children will have a great time! But a family trip to Scotland also means discovering the rugged beauty of the Highlands and Islands Road, such as Mull and Skye. It is also a festive capital, Edinburgh, with its medieval style and magnificent architecture, whose many passages and nooks and crannies make everyone, young and old, want to get lost. In short, it is a perfect destination in Europe for parents who love the wilderness and tell each other wild stories with their children! Have a nice family vacation in Scotland
