Fam­ily fun on of­fer all ac­cross the coun­try

Great days out for Christ­mas

Rutherglen Reformer - - Your Guide To Christmas -

Whether you want to splash the cash or are on a bud­get, take the time to have some fes­tive fam­ily fun.

And we’re not talk­ing about wrap­ping presents – although many of you do this by Oc­to­ber, se­ri­ously…? No, we’re just talk­ing about the en­ter­tain­ment side.

We all get so caught up in present buy­ing and shop­ping for Christ­mas din­ner that we for­get to do all the fun things.

There re­ally are more things to do this Christ­mas in Scot­land than there is glitter on the dancers in Strictly Come Danc­ing.

So we’ve found great days out for you – no mat­ter what your bud­get is. Whether it’s spree or save, we have some cracking ideas to keep you and your fam­ily en­thralled this fes­tive sea­son.

Scot­land’s win­ter fes­ti­vals are the way to go as towns and ci­ties come to life with the fes­tive spirit and of­fer spe­cial events, mar­kets, fairs, sea­sonal din­ing op­tions and more.

In Glas­gow, you’ll find unique trin­kets in the Mer­chant City and an ex­cel­lent range of Scot­tish and con­ti­nen­tal del­i­ca­cies at the popular Christ­mas mar­kets.

The Ed­in­burgh cel­e­bra­tions are cen­tred round Princes Street Gar­dens, where a large Fer­ris wheel, ice rink, Christ­mas mar­kets and tree lights re­ally cre­ate a mag­i­cal, fes­tive feel.

The Chil­dren’s Mar­ket is sit­u­ated in Santa Land in Ed­in­burgh. With face paint­ing, Christ­mas crafts and fun fes­tive chil­dren’s shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties, it is the per­fect shop­ping des­ti­na­tion for gifts and fes­tive treats.

And in Perth you can en­joy Perth Win­ter Fes­ti­vals, which will in­clude Scot­land’s first out­door choco­late fes­ti­val, a tra­di­tional Christ­mas mar­ket, an ice rink, and much more.

1. En­joy a fes­tive day out at stately homes, cas­tles, coun­try parks and other top attractions dur­ing De­cem­ber.

2. An ex­tra ef­fort has been made to en­sure that events are more af­ford­able in Ed­in­burgh.

3. For that ex­tra spe­cial fes­tive feel, fam­i­lies should head to the Win­ter Won­der­land at Whin Park from De­cem­ber 13 to 15.
