Day 3 - Tuesday 2nd July - North to the Cairngorms

Leave the bright lights of Edinburgh behind this morning as you head north to the Cairngorms.  On the way there are options to stop off at Bannockburn perhaps to meet with a local storyteller who can bring the landscape to life (especially for the kids!) or maybe an option for kayaking, gorge scrambling or canoeing for those who want more adventurous activities!

There would also be an opportunity to stop off at a food bank today in order to see first hand how the local communities are helping people in need during the cost of living crisis or perhaps spend the afternoon doing some volunteering with the John Muir Trust.

There are so many options for today depending on what everyone wants to do.  There are some amazing golf courses within an hours drive should the keen golfers want to play a round.  Perhaps the kids would like to visit the famous Cairngorm Reindeer in their artic tundra home or spend a morning biking through the ancient Caledonian pine forest.  Other options include private whisky tours, axe throwing with a local woodsman, cookery workshop at the farmhouse or adventures north to see dolphins and seals play in the water or the adventure garden at Brodie Castle!
