Our reporter Lori will be visiting the Island of Cumbrae this weekend in a Nissan Tourette Mambow campervan. This will be Lori’s last blog review for SearchScotland before she and her lovely family emigrate back to Arkansas, United States. We wish them all well on the new chapter in their lives and hope that she enjoys experiencing her last “real” trip in Scotland before the move. Would you believe that this will be her first trip to the island, well better late than never!
We had been meaning to visit the Glasgow Science Centre for quite a few weeks since hearing about the BodyWorks Exhibition that is currently showing there. In my youth I was a keen fan of the “How My Body Works” books and cartoons by Albert Barillé. I loved how Human Biology was explained in a way that I could understand it and it still inspires my interest today. For this reason I jumped at the idea of an interactive exhibition which has children and families at the centre of its teaching.
We stumbled upon the Almond Valley Heritage Centre completely by accident. We were visiting the Livingston area and were looking for something to do for children and came across their website. As folk from the West Coast of Scotland, much of the East Coast is still a mystery but we love how much we learn on each trip that way.
All the family will enjoy a wonderful day out at Almond Valley Heritage Centre, situated at the heart of Scotland just outside Livingston, West Lothian. Nestled in a pleasant riverside site with woods and green spaces that extend for almost a mile, there's so much to do and see. The picturesque buildings and paddocks of Mill Farm are home to many friendly farm animals, including Highland cattle, rare breed sheep, goats, ponies, horses, and some very inquisitive ducks.
Largs is a seaside town and no seaside visit is complete without an ice cream or a portion of fish and chips. Nardinis does both!
We had a fantastic day out in Largs which included a trip to the Kelburn Country Estate, a view from the Haylie Brae, A stroll down Largs Promenade and dinner and ice cream at Nardinis Cafe.
Largs is situated right across from the Island of Cumbrae. Standing on the shore looking out you look at Cumbrae, Bute and Arran.
