Scotland has some of the most beautiful scenery we’ve ever seen. We were lucky to spend 3 weeks in the summer for our holiday in Scotland with kids. When we travel with our kids, we tend to spend as much time outside in nature being active as possible, so we knew that Scotland would be right up our alley. But it wasn’t all hiking and some of the hikes we did were so much fun for the kids.

The majority of the people who see them stop at the viewpoint, take a few pictures, then get back in their car and leave. But did you know that one of the best Glencoe walks is a short hike up into a river valley between two of the sisters? It’s a bit challenging with small kids (ours were aged 6 & 3), but it can be done.
