Scotland Family Vacation Package
Scotland Family Vacation ...
Edinburgh, Central Scotland
No matter what time of year your family embarks on a Scotland exploration, there’s so much to do. Spring and summer bring warmer temperatures, hiking in the Highlands and exploring the western Cairngorms and Inverness. The capital city of Edinburgh comes alive in these fair months with festivals and buskers from around the world. Come fall and winter, it’s time to explore Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, Glasgow’s many enticing museums and Dunstaffnage Castle. Visit Holyrood Palace, take a boat cruise to Inchcolm Island and even take part in a mini version of the Highlander Games. Scotland is a year-round delight for kids and families of all ages.
Ciao Bambino! only recommends the activities and the places we trust to the families who trust us.
Access our tried-and-tested trip plans without extensive time spent planning, researching, booking, and more.
Our packaged trips are priced not only to offer you an incredible family-friendly experience, but also to offer you value.
Our CommUnity Impact Tours give travelers a truly global perspective — an inside look at what is being done in their destination to renew social, ecological and cultural resources and help these communities flourish. Through these immersive, one-a-kind experiences, our travelers have the opportunity to exchange ideas, customs and problem-solving techniques in the spirit of mutual respect, and to contribute with time or resources to emerging communities.
Get involved in an activity that makes a real difference – the conservation work that serves to protect and enhance the natural local environment. Join in with a group of like-minded people to learn more about the work of the John Muir Trust and give something back to nature by helping out with the path and fence repair work and the planting and nurturing of native trees. As well as providing an interesting educational insight into how wild places have been damaged by development and how positive action might be taken to redress the balance, the experts of the Trust are also able to offer the tools and the skills to supervise your assistance. The more you understand about the impact of your work in helping keep the beautiful hills and beaches clean, the greater your sense of reward at this hands-on experience.
Experience an evening of local dining as your family joins a resident family for a shared meal around their table. Learn customs and traditions while exchanging ideas about family life and culture. Based upon the preference of the client, as well as destination, this opportunity may be a shared meal, cooking lesson and/or market visit.
A beautiful time of year to visit Scotland for our clean fresh air, plants and flowers, and to see the mountains, lochs and countryside in all their scenic splendor.
Another nice time to visit Scotland, and to be honest, some years there’s not too much of a difference weather-wise from spring to summer.
Summer in Edinburgh is buzzing. The streets are alive with not only local and national visitors, but performers from all over the world converge on the city to take part in the popular Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which runs for a full three weeks in August. Summer events give way to the more relaxed pace of our autumn events, like the Scottish Countryside Festival in Glamis, Angus, in the grounds of Glamis Castle, and provides great fun for everyone in the family. This is also an ideal time for all the outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the best of walking, cycling and climbing.
When winter is approaching, many tourists visit Scotland just to sample the shopping that Glasgow and Edinburgh have to offer. Some stay for winter events, and there are some spectaculars with Glasgow On Ice, running from late November until late December, with music and ice dancing. But those who really want to let their hair down return year after year for the fabulous Edinburgh Hogmanay Party event. We also have many visitors coming for the skiing in Scotland, to enjoy the fantastic slopes and stunning scenery, but there’s no rush to get here in January or February, because the good news is, we can sometimes get snowfalls right up until Easter.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
