Explore. Create. Unplug. Discover a spellbinding adventure...  

Partnering with Scotland’s wonderful wizards of creative pursuits and eco-fun - alongside master of traditional arts and crafts - we’re excited to present an exploratory, artistic weekend of adventure filled with family activities, arts and craft and theatrical magic.

Try your hand at bushcraft and forest craft techniques, build your own boat to set sail on our moat, listen to folklore and storytelling, uncover the mysteries of our natural world or get (a little bit) lost in our maze. Most importantly, have a whole lot of FUN.

All this, amidst the wonder of an enchanting castle and beautiful woodland, in the heart of the Scottish countryside.

We’ve conjured up a thrilling programme of events and activities to keep you entertained throughout the weekend.  And that's a pinkie promise.

A WILDHOOD adventure…

Step into the Kingdom of WILDHOOD and discover a world of adventure around every corner: in wee nooks and crannies, cosied up under canvas, beneath a woodland canopy, on the castle lawn or off-the-beaten track. In the heart of the Scottish countryside - amidst ever-changing forests and fields, waterways and weathers - your wild child will be in their element! So, pack wellies and waterproofs, sunscreen and a sense of adventure. Then, with your head in the clouds and feet on the earth, go off in search of your WILDHOOD.

Wander and Wonder…

What if you forgot the tick-tock of the clock? And put down your diary for a day (or two)? Instead, lose track of time on our trails and step into the rhythm of summer. It’s the WILDHOOD way.  No need to pre-book activities, workshops, classes or adventures. Just drop-in and join in! If you fancy doing something that’s full up, wander onwards and you’ll soon stumble upon another experience to delight your little ones - and the rest of the family! Most likely, you’ll eventually come full circle and find a space in the event that first excited you. So, just move to the beat of your feet and feel the hum-drum of modern life drift you rediscover your WILDHOOD.
