75 Activities for Kids in Edinburgh
Do you have kids? Are you in Scotland, planning to visit Scotland, or are you just curious as to what there is to do here with kids? Below is a huge list of activities to do with children, and I can honestly say that we’ve been to some of them as a family and have had a fantastic time! Some of them on the list are a bit of a drive to get to from Edinburgh city centre, but it’s well worth the trip! I hope you find something your family will love.
