I'm visiting relatives in St Andrews with dd (7) this summer and was thinking of going on a mini adventure with dd.

Any suggestions ? We both love exploring the shore, I was thinking possibly introducing her to camping.

Any magical quiet places within a hundred or so miles of St Andrews ?

Posted this on another thread recently but Nydie Farm just outside Strathkinnes is lovely. You can go as basic (tent only) or hook up or glamp it up in the lovely wood wams. So close to many fun attractions for a 7 year old and long summer evenings with a fire pit over looking the bay. Many happy times there smile

Second for Nydie here. The Tav in the nearby village of Strathkinness does excellent food and there's a wood nearby for dog walking of needed

That isn’t 100 miles though - it is about 5!

There are loads of lovely campsites all round the East Neuk. No need to travel far.

And also visit Craigtoun Park. It is great for little kids.

Tinkly I may be wrong, but I think the riding stables at Tentsmuir (Kinshaldy) has gone full livery and no longer offers lessons/hacks unless you have your own horse there. I'd not recommend Edenside either (I had two potentially serious accidents there).

Argh, posted before finishing.

I've heard good things about Barbarafield, which is near Cupar.

We're camping in the forest at loch lommond - the site looks great. We're also going to Loch Ness too but our total mileage from home and back again is just over 1000

My DD went riding at Barbrafield with her BF. She came home stinking of horse, with a sore butt, muttering that that £25 could have bought her a top from Topshop. It is no surprise that she lives and works in London. The country life does not appeal to her. However i believe it is very good.
