"Unusual fun day out…"
This is a wonderful venue with outdoor art installations, exhibitions, activities for the children and animals to meet.
It is just outside Edinburgh, public transport isn't that good with a long walk to reach the main buildings but parking is good and plentiful.
There is lots to do and see and plenty to explore in this lovely relaxed rural setting. However there is no formal seating outside the cafe area or warm place to shelter during bad weather. Picnics are not allowed so although there is a cafe as it is expensive an all day stay wouldn't be practical on a budget.
The organised activities as part of the education programme are exceptional and if pre arranged as part of a day out would be a fantastic outing for children. As noted earlier the lack of seating means any older family members may find a full day a strain.
