Here are just a few of our suggestions to get you started…

On our doorstep (less than 10 mins away) fr children and adults
We’d recommend Muddy Boots, Cairnie Fruit Farm, and the Scottish Deer Centre for children and adults.

Muddy Boots : Local family run Farm Shop with fruit and veg straight from the field.  Has a large café, and great kids activities  including indoor play areas (slides, ball pits, soft ball cannons etc), grass sledging, zorbing, mini-tractors, jumping pillows and pottery.

Cairnie Fruit Farm:  Another family run farm shop and fruit farm where you can pick your own fruit, try to find your way through the Maize Maze,  relax in the café or use the funyard with go-carts, sunken trampolines, sand box, crazy swings, peddle tractors, bouncing pillow, 30ft flying fox, or 4WD barrel Bug Ride.

Scottish Deer Centre:  Take a walk on the wild side, and get close up to  13 species of deer, plus wolves, Lynx, Scottish Wildcats, Otters, and European Brown Bears.  also has daily falconry shows, and indoor/outdoor play areas  including an adventure playground, zip wire slides, climbing frames and pedal karts.  The Deer Centre also has a great café and a large Edinburgh Woollen mill shop with clothing, gifts, food and drink, and a Ponden Mill.
