Can you recommend somewhere to stay for a family holiday in Scotland please. Arriving in Edinburgh and can travel from there.

All suggestions welcome.

Arran is beautiful, about a 3 hour journey from edinburgh including the ferry.

Second Aviemore, and add Aberfeldy or Loch Tay.

Depends what kind of holiday.. Do you want activities? Watersports? Walks? Beaches?

Outer Hebrides!

How long have you got?

Agree with Aviemore (though weegiemum is also spot on with outer Hebrides, especially Harris which is magical)

Depends what you want - give us some more to work on..

Aviemore v. Different to Outer Hebrides.

Basically we don't have long enough to do everything that we would love to do. Will probably have to restrict the distance to half a day's driving from Edinburgh, possibly a bit further. Walking, hiking (although restricted with a four year old), swimming, some culture.

Thanks everyonesmile

How about Lochgoilhead. Drimsynie holiday park is nice, with leisure facilities on site. Good mix of mountains and sea loch. 15 minute drive to Arrochar, another 5 to loch lomond, about 30 mins to Inverary...loads to see.

I recommend St Andrews. Amazing beach, golf, historic university, abbey, castle. Good shops/ cafes/ restaurants. Only 1 1/4 hrs from Edinburgh www.standrews.co.uk/things-to-do-in-st-andrews/sports-leisure/craigtoun-country-park/ Craigtoun is great for a 4 yr old- little train, trampolines, rowing boats, loads of open space to run around too. Also in the area are Cupar Deer park, great coastal walks, loads of lovely fishing villages such as Pittenweem and Crail, award winning fish and chips....

All sounds great. Wish we had a couple of months rather then less then two weeks.
