Little Trekkers Ambassadors

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

Moody & Magnificent Beecraigs Forest

Moody & Magnificent Beecraigs Forest

After our recent trip to the Isle of Mull we tagged on another few days to spend some time near Linlithgow to see a Jousting event organised by Historic Environment Scotland. It was another one of those 'really want to do one-day' events that had not happened for many years. So when we were south of Inverness anyway - well it made sense to keep going! (That's Highlander logic for you)

End of an era - no more Tagalong.

End of an era - no more Tagalong.

One of our favourite bike rides is to go across on the ferry to Strangford and cycle into Castleward to spend a bit of time exploring the bike trails there. We’d always taken Chloe on the Tagalong as the road up to Castleward is narrow and can be very busy. She’s having none of that now, so this year, we let her go under her own steam.

Fife Recce Part 3 - To Crail and Beyond

As it turned out, there were lots of lovely places to eat in Crail. There was even a lobster BBQ right down by Crail's harbour in a little shack. But by the time we got there only one lobster was left in its bubbling big outdoor tank, so we headed to the first place we found - a tearoom and gallery, inside a 17th Century fisherman’s cottage cellar.

It’s a firmly established tradition that we have at least one campfire at the beach each summer. What was different this year, was the Harry pretty much took charge of the whole thing, assisted in a range of helpful and not so helpful ways by Chloe. Here’s their step-by-step guide to a successful campfire.

Stanage: Queen of Grit (Part 1)

Stanage: Queen of Grit (Part 1)

The view of Stanage Edge is surely one of the iconic images of British climbing. Not for nothing is she known as the Queen of Grit. James tells me that he vividly remembers his first glimpse of Stanage. I vividly recall his reaction: as we approached from Hathersage and the Edge reared up out of the landscape, like the ramparts of a great castle, James’s jaw dropped. He spoke in soft, reverent tones: “Wow. Just wow. Are we going to climb there, Mummy?”
