Looking to take the kids to both the above places this summer - wonder if anyone knows where to get vouchers for them or any way to get in cheaper - (Joining a cluborganisation) or buying some type of pass?

Thanks for any info!

Also any recommendations for anywhere else to take kids between Aberdeen and EdinburghGlasgow appreciated! And finally anyone recommend any apartments available for rent I could try in the EdinburghGlasgow area (Preferably in a town or one of the citys) Just with toddlers its easier than a hotel room! Kids are 2 and 3....

Thanks in afdvance

Hi, wish I'd seen this earlier as I was out at a country park where they had vouchers for free kids places at Blair Drummond. They are fairly common. When you going? If not in immediate future i could look for some and send them on. The papers do tokens for the zoo now and again and I'll have a look out for them. Just outside Glasgow is M & D's http://www.scotlandsthemepark.com/ nothing like the ones you get in England but my toddler loves it. It's also situated in a country park with a lake (for throwing stones in water :-D) and an excellent play park.

Not far from strathclyde park is calderglen park which has a free childrens zoo. There are Wallabies, meerkats, goats, snakes and other creatures but nothing big.

Also loads of activities and festivals laid on during the holidays. If you know roughly when your going I could let you know whats on.

It's good to go at feeding time. Watch them throw monkeys to the lions.

Im up in Brechin - North of Dundee but hoping to get money from the ex to pay my share to go away with the kis somewhere - either that or get my ass in gear and sell some stuff here. i dont drive so my sister will be coming for adult company and so e can share the workload of 3 toddlers - 2 mine, and 1 hers! My mum might come too but then thats an extra adult to pay for and she doesnt like long journeys! Am hoping to get somewhere around Stirling\Loch Lomond area and use it as a base to visit places in Glasgow\Edinburgh area as not to far to commute by car then but we may get somewhere for a few days Edinburgh way, then somewhere Glasgow way...As for when we are going - we are not sure whether to go away in about a fortnight, or wait til my sisters other half is away back to Sunny Sakhalin as seems a shame to use up his time at home with an extra family round about, even if I am my sisters second family when he is away!

So M& D's is quite good? hadn't heard any reports on it so thought it was maybe not that great...cool i'll look at its website....

Oh yeah,thanks and apologies for delay, just had an overnight trip to London with ex as he was in UK for two days and wanted to see kids - he was held up on his arrival due to flight getting delayed from Turkey and wasacross getting a visa for madagascar....unfortunately everything was last minute so with commuying back and forwards from airports to embassy to hotel, back to embassy next morning then flying out of Luton, and his blackberry going every 2 mins we never got chance to take kids anywhere, not that he's into anything from Uk - now he lives in New York, just gives him another place to compare Uk unfavourably against which is his passion in life!

Yeah been there once this year - am from Aberdeen originally but rentals are cheaper down here now I am split - just its a but pricey for all that there is there - if they had a sand pit however the kids would be in their element. Got a season family pass for brechin Castle Centre - its got a sand pit and not too long a walk, quicker with the pram though as the estimated 25 minute walk takes a lot longer than that with a 2 year old! All depends if I can persuade them to go in the pram though! And the weather of course!

Was sooo much warmer down south the last couple of days - didnt have to wear a jacket while out and about!

Mc D's theme park in Motherwell is great (they accept tesco vouchers). Also try Stirling castle, for little ones it great as you can play at being soldiers and sit on the cannons and shoot them. For the older children I would recommend the dungeon tour, as they treat you like a prisoner and lock you up, and pretend to toture you (sounds horrible, but the kids love it)

However definitely do Edinburgh Zoo, its the one of the better zoo's.

If you feel like a day trip out (approx 2-3 hours drive) travel to loch ness, the little one love trying to find nessy :-D
