OK, so they (DH & 3 DSs) will be playing a lot of golf during the week we're there, 13th - 20th August. I like shopping, but not for a whole week. I also like art galleries, museums, walking, reading, swimming & water sports. Can you suggest some activities for me? We're staying at Kinkell Braes Caravan Park, which I understand is quite near the city centre.

Many thanks, Fidelma. DSs are teenagers, & DH petrol head, so go karts should do the trick, whilst I sip tea in the cafe! Glad you mentioned spa, I'll have a go at booking that in advance. I heard that walks booklet advertised on Classic FM and was interested, but not organised enough to actually purchase the paper! Must go on Freegle to see if anyone will donate one to me. Will pack our kites, thanks for the tip. Might pass on the pig-feeding though as there's a pig farm at the back of our house & you can have enough of a good thing!

TBH this should see me through the week, but if anyone else has additions, I'm compiling a Wordfile dossier!
