Baby's First HolidayWritten by Administrator
When choosing your baby’s first holiday experience, give Scotland some consideration. It may be the home of golf and tartan but unbeknown to many tourists, it is an ideal family destination.
The laws in Scotland are very accommodating to parents with young babies. For example breastfeeding is encouraged and by law you are able to feed in public. And more so, If you would like a quiet space to feed and change your baby, public places such as accommodation providers (that allow children), restaurants, shops and even historic castles have to provide an area that is clean and safe. Health and safety is also very important in Scotland, and you will find that in many playcentres, a designated space is provided solely for baby and toddler use.
Scotland has many beaches and parks that are perfect for a baby’s first summer holiday where they can paddle, play in the sand and just enjoy the general outdoors. Many of Scotland’s coastal towns provide the perfect day out with arcades, ice cream, cafes and restaurants that are the envy of the world. Some locations even provide under 2s lots of fun with special toddler activities.
There are also many events across Scotland which provide family day out activities. The Up and Coming Largs Festival is an example of this. Furthermore if mummy and daddy want to experience a great Scottish Music Festival, little bambinos are more than welcome at the Hebridean Celtic Festival on the Island of Lewis. It would make for a great story to tell them when they are older!
