Edinburgh, Scotland: 5 Family Attractions You Won't Want to Miss

With wild beaches, deep lochs and romantic castles, Scotland has been voted the most beautiful country in the world by Rough Guides. Its quaint, medieval town of Edinburgh, with all its old-world charm, is a must-see along with these five family-friendly attractions!

Camera Obscura: This is a major tourist attraction that will encourage even the most proper of adults to behave like children – hosting fun exhibits, puzzles and optical illusions!

National Museum of Scotland: Scotland’s most popular attraction is fun for the whole family. Because it’s free you won’t feel guilty if you haven’t seen all of it.

Edinburgh Castle: Wherever you go in Edinburgh, there it is: the castle, proudly towering over the rest of the city.

Palace of Holyroodhouse: While it’s always fun to visit castles, it’s even more special when you get to visit an actual working palace!

The Scotch Whisky Experience: On your tour, you’ll embark on an interactive barrel ride and later, as you’re sipping your whisky sample, your little one will be sipping a pour of Irn Bru!

I've been to Ediburgh twice, but never with the kids. I hope to take them one day, so I'll definitely keep these ideas in mind. Thanks, Samantha Aleman ! And welcome to our writing community!

Love, love, love! Can’t wait to travel abroad with my kids one day and Scotland and Wales are high on my list...they have been since my last visit 20 years ago. 😁

Also a good place for ghost hunters. Keep your eyes & ears open while there. You just might see or hear something otherworldly! Seriously though, I would love to go. It's high on my bucket list, right under Kenya.
