Want to spend a few hours in Nairn during late October with my 9 yr old grandson. Any thoughts what we could do please. Thanks
Have you read this?
Fort George is wonderful and probably much more there to interest a 9 year old boy than at Culloden.
I spent a whole day there and didn't have time to get bored. You can also have lunch in the army canteen! The Living History talk was also excellent and grndson would enjoy that as there was plenty of information for the youngsters to enjoy as well as the adults.
The Museum is in the centre of Nairn. It's a long time since I went though. Trip Advisor reviews are good.
Nairn has a lovely beach too.
He might also enjoy Clava Cairns which are just a short distance from Culloden Battlefiedl. They are open daylight hours but most atmospheric late afternoon when the light is low and all the visitors have gone.
My review and pictures here.
My 9 years old daughter ( at the time ) has enjoyed jumping on the rocks by the seaside. The seaside promenade in Nairn is very pleasant, and there's a very nice children playground next to it.
All in all, we liked Nairn. It seemed like a very enjoyable little town to visit, and very handy for visiting attractions in vicinity too. Both Cawdor Castle and Castle Brody are very near,
Another thing i should have mentioned is that we will be using public transport. That possibly may restrict what we can do?Edited: 1 year ago
