Things for Kids to Do Around
Inverness and Loch Ness

There is a vast amount of things to do and places to visit around Inverness and Loch Ness for people of all ages. Here we continue our focus on things for kids to do in the area.

Landmark Forest Adventure Park

A great day out with fun, discovery and adventure for the whole family at Landmark Forest Adventure Park in the Highlands.

Where else can you twist and turn through the trees on a family friendly roller-coaster, take the plunge down one of three water coasters and even get the chance to walk through an amazing tropical hot-house with hundreds of stunningly beautiful butterflies and exotic flowers?

And don’t forget to take in the beauty and tranquillity of the 10,000-year-old forest via the Tree Top Trail. It’s a must-do for any family in the Cairngorms National Park!

Corrimony Chambered Cairn

The kids can walk 4000 years back in time, amongst a circle of standing stones and discover this ancient passage grave. The cairn - in a remarkable state of preservation - is situated in a glen, with pleasant surroundings of birch wood and cultivated land.

Robertson’s Children’s Farmyard

Youngsters like nothing better than getting up close to the farm animals. At Robertson’s Children’s Farmyard, they can meet sheep and lambs, ducks and hens, rabbits, alpacas, a pig and donkeys and various types of goats. There is also a large play area with a climbing frame and slide, sit-on toys and a very large sand pit.

Kids can learn about the history of Scotland and the Highlands. They can follow the museum’s timeline to discover how the unique highland landscape was formed. Or learn how to say some Gaelic words and phrases. They can even wrap themselves up in an 18th century style highland kilt!
