We visited at the end of October 2017 for my Stag do of 9 people and a good few hours was had by all! The go Karting session ran smoothly and the staff were professional.
I booked a few months prior to the event and dealt mainly with Glen who had everything organised perfectly. The track was a decent size and the Go Karts were a lot faster than expected. The site was easy to find and everything ran smoothly. I would strongly recommend Xtreme Karting to anyone!

Our visit came through a Reading from local magazine, nice bright place, disappointed with fruit and veg in their quality, expensive as well, shop in general was clean and tidy, sadly staff were not very engaging, also most prices were way above any normal prices, will not be back

Forth Boat Tours

A 90 minute Forth Bridges Cruise on the Firth of Forth depart from Hawes Pier at South Queensferry which is only a short distance from Scotland's bustling Capital City of Edinburgh. A boat trip aboard the Forth Belle is an ideal way to spend any morning or afternoon. Sit on the outside deck or in the heated observation lounge and listen to the guided commentary. Take in the magnificent views of the Forth Road Bridge and the world-famous, recently awared, World Heritage Forth Railway Bridge built in the Victorian era; the beautiful panoramas of the Edinburgh skyline to the south and the Kingdom of Fife to the north and the beautiful island of Inchcolm with its medieval abbey.

Reviewed By J4NOD - Morpeth, United Kingdom

This is just such a great tour and the commentary very interesting. The cream tea was a lovely surprise. sailed on Sat 17th Feb and we were lucky to have a nice sunny day. WE both said when next in Edinburgh we will do this trip again.
Oh yes....the CHEESE....When we boarded the boat, someone must have hidden a large quantity of gorgonzola cheese! The smell, phew! That or who ever left the boat prior to us boarding must have the record for the worlds smelliest feet.
Think some air fresh would have been welcomed.
All said, a great trip.

Almond Valley Heritage Centre

A family-friendly museum on a peaceful riverside site with friendly farm animals, working watermill and interactive displays. Explore fields and woodland walks, join in daily demonstrations and activities, and let the kids go wild in Playgrounds, pedal carts and trampolines. Take a trip by tractor, ride the narrow-gauge railway, explore the museum, or bounce around in the indoor soft play area. There is lots to see and do at Almond Valley indoors and out.

Reviewed By Vhornibrook - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

We decided to do a little last min family day at Almond Valley and were absolutely thrilled with our choice. We had so much fun around all their normal facilities but the icing on the cake was Santa. He chatted with our little boy, posed for all pics and was a total delight. The pressy was also fantastic, all age ranges catered for and our guy got a beautifully illustrated animal book, all this for only £3.50 (on top of entrance fee).
As a side note we are just back from Santa on George St which was a complete waste of money and time. George street was over twice the price, after queuing you were rammed in to a tiny sweat box, got a communal 2 minute speech, a 2 second hello and a cheap colouring book. The whole thing is so badly organised, over subscribed and such a let down. In contrast Almond Valley is relaxed, informal, friendly and just a lovely alround family experience.
If you are looking for a lovely family day with Santa I can not recommend Almond Valley highly enough. Great job all!

Forth Bridge

Reviewed By Natalie M

To see the three bridge, each of them so impressive in their own right, lined up together was simply amazing. Such an incredible vista which was absolutely worth the drive from Edinburgh.
And such a lovely little village at the foot of the Bridges. Couple of lovely Inns there if you want to stop and some great history too.

Linlithgow Palace

The magnificent ruin of a great Royal Palace set in its own park and beside Linlithgow Loch. A favoured residence of the Stewart kings and queens from James I (1406-37) onward. Building work commissioned by James I, III, IV, V and VI can be seen. The great hall and chapel are particularly fine. James V (1512) and Mary Queen of Scots (1542) were both born here. Surfaces inside the Palace are mainly stone slabs and small cobbles in the courtyard. The ticket office, shop and courtyard are accessible to visitors with disabilities. More mobile visitors should be able to access the first floor which forms the main part of the property. Access is available to Linlithgow Loch and extensive peel (park).

We have visited Linlithgow Palace many times and return most months.
The views from the outside are equal to the views from inside.
The friendly staff will give you a warm welcome and are very knowledgeable on the history of the building and the historical events
The Palace setting next to Linlithgow Loch is just amazing at any time of the year, parking is limited at busy times but there is plenty of parking just a short walk away. There is also good links by train and bus if you want to use public transport
Treat yourself to a pleasant walk around the Loch , it is about 2.5 Miles, the views of the Palace will take your breath away

Reviewed By fatdrummer - Prestonpans, United Kingdom

Have not visited since 2012. What a difference, bigger and better than before. Spent about 5 hours in the place and could have stayed longer easily. Next time we'll have to get there earlier. Had an enjoyable wander round looking at the animals. The bears and lions didn't want to come out but you were able to look in the windows and see them. My wife loved watching the otters playing about. I could have watched the wolves all day. Our daughter was scared of the crocodiles but returned for a second visit before leaving. Nice little cafe for a warm drink and some food. Really enjoyed the visit and won't leave it so long for the next visit.

Beecraigs Country Park

Reviewed By Michigander829 - South Haven, Michigan

We were taken to the Beecraigs restaurant for breakfast, which was excellent, and then put on our boots to walk it off. Deer and cattle to watch and good woodland walks. Lots of families at the adventure play park. A really nice place to spend two or three hours. We didn’t make it up the nearby hill which our hosts told us provided spectacular views. Next time definitely.
