Hi, the weather doesn't seem to be improving any at all and me and my ds and dd are looking for a good day out (indoors obviously) in central scotland. We usually go to the likes of Almond Valley Heritage Centre in Livingston but perhaps looking for something different.

I dont know, but will watch with interest, we are supposed to be goin to Ed zoo on saturday but think we will need an indoor plan too

Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh? Dd has been with pil but we haven't.

You could have a wander into The Scottish Parliament too, I think there is a cafe in there.

We went to Dynamic Earth and it was really good. So thanks for the recommendations. Bit more expensive than the usual Almond Valley which still has loads to do indoors but was a completely different experience and the kids loved it.

Thanks
