Now is a wonderful time to visit Scotland, with temperatures reaching around 13°C and beautiful flowers such as lillies and daffodils in full bloom. It’s nearing the start of summer at Shieldhill Castle and we are really glad that with the lifting of lockdown we will be able to spend this summer with you. Here are just a few of the things to see and do for the perfect Scottish vacation at Shieldhill Castle with the ones you love.
Perfect for families or couples, visit the Lanark Loch. 20 acre man-made loch with that is open for fishing, children’s activities, golf and more between May until September. The Inn on the Loch has a 9 hole pitch and putt course, boating pond with bumper boats, course fishing (permit only), children’s play area, trampolines, and a refreshment kiosk.
Or why not visit the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve, it stretches along both sides of the Clyde gorge, which provides a great variety of habitats full of wildlife to discover. It’s free to visit too! There are 3 different waterfalls to see along the Clyde Walkway, so make sure you bring your camera to take pictures of the stunning views. If you want to find out about the area and the animals that live there, pop in to the Visitor Centre, which is open daily and free to visit. There you can watch live footage of nesting peregrines in the Peregrine Experience, plus there are interactive games and toys, including wildlife crafts!
