Almond Valley Heritage Centre

Adults £3, Children £2, FAmily (2 adults + upto 4 kids £10

This is an absolutely brillant day out for all the family.

There is a museum full of the local history and lots of hands on stuff to do as well.

There is also the farm with lots of animal. When we were there today there were 2 new lambs which had been rejected by their mother so we were able toi see them getting fed. The kiddies were even encouraged to hold the bottles for the lambs.

There are also a couple of indoor play areas. A small soft play area for 5 and unders and a larger barn for the older kids.

You can get a cuppa and a sandwich in the tearoom or if you prefer to take your own food there is a Picnic Barn.

Just adding to this post to agree with the others about it being a great day out for the kids.

We were in Scotland over Easter and spent an afternoon at the centre on Easter Monday. Weather was kind (albeit a few light showers) and the children (ages 22mths, 4yrs, 7yrs) had a lovely time. Good mixture of indoor and outdoor attractions and not too expensive for a family.

As someone who lives quite near this place can I add that West Lothian also has an abundance of country parks that are well worth visiting, they are also free.

Muiravonside park, which is on the way to Falkirk, has a small childrens farm, again all free and well worth a visit.
