Landmark Forest Adventure Park Admission Ticket

Visit: Landmark Forest Adventure Park, Carrbridge, Aviemore, Aviemore and the Cairngorms, Scottish Highlands, ScotlandWinner of 'The Perfect Family Day Out' Visit Scotland and The Daily Mail, Landmark Forest Adventure Park also won Mumsnet 'Best Outdoor Playground' award. Where else can you twist and turn through the trees on a family friendly roller-coaster, take the plunge down one of three water coasters and even get the chance to walk through an amazing tropical hot-house with hundreds of stunningly beautiful butterflies and exotic flowers!? Be intrigued at the world’s first Bamboozeleum right here in the Cairngorms; you’ll enter a magical gallery of illusions and puzzles to test the sharpest of wits. See infinity rooms, morphing machines, thermal imagery and more that will fascinate the youngest to the wisest of minds. Take an adventure down to the Wonderwood where nothing is as it seems! Here you will find three mind-boggling cabins where the normal rules of physics simply don’t apply. Which one will be your favourite – The Spinning Vortex, Topsy Turvy Room or the Growing-Shrinking Room? For those looking for a real challenge why not take on RopeworX, the first high-ropes course of its kind in the UK. According to scientists you are officially 98% monkey, so now’s your chance to put their theory to the test. Harness up and step up to the plate! For those under 1.5m, the Tarzan Trail offers a great alternative and the Wee Monkey Trail is absolutely ideal for those aged 2-5. Perhaps the mightiest challenge of them all though is Skydive. Skydive is a pure adrenaline experience, just harness up, climb the mast to 50 feet and step off… easy! Just don’t let the nerves get the better of you! The latest addition to the park is the Butterfly house, which is an amazing tropical hot-house with hundreds of stunningly beautiful butterflies and exotic flowers. Watch close-up as they hatch, fly and feed on nectar and fruit. Make sure to look out for the recently added Asian Quail, scuttling through the undergrowth! Are you brave enough to follow in the footsteps of the Lost Explorer to the safety of The Amazing Tree Mansion? Bubbling mud pools, dangerous caverns, dangerous creatures and a magic waterfall gateway are just a few of the challenges that will bring your adventurous family lots of laughs and scares on the way. Don’t forget to take in the beauty and tranquillity of the 10,000 year old forest via the Tree Top Trail. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for some rare, red squirrels on the way! If you enjoy this walkway, then you’ll love the panoramic views from the top of the Forest Tower. Families have been enjoying Landmark Forest Adventure Park for nearly 50 years and with all these great activities on offer, it’s a must-do for any family in the Cairngorms National Park!

Whisky Bus Tour from Inverness

The Whisky Bus departs from Inverness at 8.45am, where we board a well-appointed coach with air conditioning, onboard WC and PA system. Accompanied by an experienced local driver, and separate knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, we will embark on a 10-hour whisky-fuelled adventure to the following Highland and Speyside whisky establishments; 1. Tomatin Distillery Our first stop is at Tomatin Distillery, where whisky production is thought to have been a way of life since as far back as the fifteenth century. Here you will be taken on an distillery tour, which will give you a great foundation for the day ahead. After the tour you will be encouraged to “ experience the softer side of the Highlands” with tutored tastings of three specially selected drams. 2. Glenlivet Distillery Our next stop is Glenlivet Distillery, where you will experience a tutored tasting of three drams in one of their most exclusive tasting rooms. Following this, you will have some time to browse the exhibition, where you can find out more about the irrepressible spirit of The Glenlivet. You may also wish to browse the shop or try some whisky cake in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop. 3. Glenfarclas Distillery Our next stop is Glenfarclas Distillery, one of the few family-owned distilleries in Scotland, and a favourite of our customers due to its relaxed ambience and unique history. Here we will hear a bit about the distillery, whilst enjoying a dram in the unique surroundings of their bonded warehouse. After that we will head inside, where you will enjoy a second tasting of this traditional Speyside malt in the luxurious surroundings of The Ship’s Room. 4. Speyside Cooperage At the Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in Scotland, highly skilled coopers are still using traditional skills to restore and repair casks. Here we will be treated to a 4D audio-visual presentation, before heading to the viewing gallery to admire the coopers at work.  You can even try your hand at making a mini-cask too! 5. Aberlour Distillery Last but not least is Aberlour Distillery,  where we are guaranteed a warm welcome from their experienced and enthusiastic team. Situated in the pretty town of the same name, bang in the middle of Speyside, we end our whisky extravaganza on a high with a complimentary taste  in the delightful setting of one of their dramming rooms.  You will then have time to browse their compact yet tempting shop. As the journey through Speyside is a picturesque one, we will make a couple of scenic photo stops on the homeward journey; these include Ballindalloch Castle and the 18th Century packhorse bridge in Carrbridge. Upon your return to Inverness, there are many excellent pubs within a few minutes’ walk of the bus stop, so you may well find that some of your fellow travelers will join you to toast a final "uisge beatha"!

Highland and Speyside Explorer Tour from Inverness

The Highland & Speyside Explorer Tour departs from Inverness at 8.45am, where we board a well-appointed coach with air conditioning, onboard WC and PA system. Accompanied by an experienced local driver, and separate knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, we will embark on a sightseeing adventure to the following attractions; 1.  Culloden Battlefield Culloden was a short but bloody battle which took place on 16th April 1746 and marked the final chapter of the Jacobite Uprising . On a tour of this significant sight, your guide will bring the landscape to life as he enthralls you with a poignant account of the battle, the ensuing escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the subsequent demise of the Gaelic language and Highland clan culture. 2. Clava Cairns Our next stop is Clava Cairns, a hugely significant Bronze Age cemetery complex of passage graves, ring cairns, a kerb cairn and standing stones in a beautiful location. This is a fantastic example of Highland history which dates back around 4000 years (and, for Outlander fans, make sure you listen out for the split stone buzzing!) 3. Glenlivet Distillery The Glenlivet is situated in the heart of Scotland's malt whisky making country.  Here you will have 30 minutes to explore the exhibition, where you can find out about the turbulent history of the whisky smugglers, and delve into the intriguing mysteries of distilling.  You may wish to enjoy a coffee in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop, or take a walk up to Josie’s Well. Alternatively, for an additional £8 per person, you can partake in a tutored tasting of three whiskies in one of the distillery's most exclusive tasting rooms. (This option can be booked on the day of the tour, and should be paid in cash to the tour guide). 4. Knockando Woolmill This historic district mill has been producing woven fabric on its historic looms for over 200 years. Your volunteer guide will show you round the cluster of sympathetically restored buildings which house the spinning and weaving machines and, hopefully, you should be able to see the weavers at work. We would recommend souvenir shopping here, as it is the only place in Scotland where you can buy the goods produced at the mill. 6. Ballindalloch Castle First and foremost a family home, this "Pearl of the North" has been lived in continuously by the Macpherson-Grants since 1546, and the magnificent building is resplendent with family memorabilia, fine furniture and paintings. You will have around 1 ½ hours here to independently explore both the castle and its lush gardens. You may also wish to sample the excellent homebaking in the cafe, or pick up some souvenirs. 7. Carrbridge On our homeward journey we stop for a photo of the beautiful packhorse bridge in Carrbridge, before returning to Inverness with wonderful memories of an action-packed day.
