Find your perfect family day out or holiday at Crieff Hydro

Are you searching for the elusive Scottish holiday to keep all ages entertained, engrossed and having fun? You can find it all at Crieff Hydro, writes Jackie Mitchell.

Nestled in the leafy Perthshire countryside, in one of the most, yet relaxing desirable destinations, lies a holiday destination packed with adrenalin-pumping, high-octane fun for all ages – and all within 60 miles of Edinburgh or Glasgow.

With 900-acres of beautiful estate land to explore, free use of the leisure centre and two hours of free childcare a day, it’s easy to see why parents pick Crieff Hydro time and time again. The venue is tranquillity itself – but with a twist for those who don’t like to dawdle all day long.

There are beautiful rooms and suites in the main hotel – which dates back to 1868 – plus stunning self-catering villas and lodges, meaning every member of the family, from toddlers to great grannies, and even the family dog can have a fun-filled summer break.

But for those looking for something that little bit more exhilarating, great days out start from as little as £15pp for activity day passes at the Crieff Hydro’s Activity Centre, Action Glen

Maybe you fancy exploring the grounds and The Knock on our EZ Raiders,zipping tree high along a zip wire, taking part in the woodland combat, trying rifle shooting, Axe Throwing, hitting the spot with archery or a combination of them all? Action Glen more than lives up to its name. The Aloft Treetop Adventure is a popular activity with over 25 obstacles, 12 ziplines (including one that is 170m long), three courses and adventure at speeds of up to 26mph!

For those slightly less adventurous, but who still want sporty fun, there’s foot golf, disc golf or crazy golf, or for those who still want to clamber and climb, the Glens Adventure Park is one of the best playparks in the region, with an a-maze-ing twist – let their smiles tell you just how good it is!

Premium activities include Alpaca trekking – say hi to the every-so-friendly  Chewpaca, Harry Potter, Ghost and Casper; or try the brand new escape room, EZ Rider and quad biking.

It’s the summer holiday where relaxation and fun go hand-in-hand, and the words ‘I’m bored’ simply vanish from every kids’ vocabulary.

Just in case you run out of planned activities and fancy a little chill alongside your thrill, there are mile after mile of walking trails around the grounds.

Crieff Hydro has a wonderful world on the doorstep with plenty to explore in the region for all ages – but we’ve a sneaky feeling that once you park your car up on day one it won’t move an inch … sit back, relax, and do as little or as much as you fancy.
