A secret forest, a crocodile swamp and an amazing adventure course makes Kelburn Country Centre one of Scotland’s most thrilling days out for kids.
Based around a 13th Century castle that’s had an amazing makeover courtesy of a team of Brazilian artists, the estate near Largs, Ayrshire also features pony-trekking and a fabulous pets’ corner for the little ones.
But there’s plenty to keep the adults occupied too, with dramatic walks, breathtaking gardens and many features of historical interest.
The Kelburn Glen with its waterfalls and deep gorges is regarded as one of Scotland’s most beautiful woodlands and leads to spectacular views over the islands of the Firth of Clyde.
Our most popular attraction is the Secret Forest, a complex of woodland paths and raised walkways with surprises at every turn.
Then, there’s our famous Adventure Course, a challenging trail of high walkways and rope Swings, our fortress-style Stockade, with a 20ft high tower and our Playbarn, a softplay maze of tunnels, slides and dens.
Playing by our spectacular waterfalls is always an irresistible attraction for children. The Waterfall Pool, set in a spectacular sandstone grotto is only 250 yards from the Centre.
