Scotland trip with kids

I would appreciate any itineraries to do with 4 boys during August.

We are staying in Glencoe for a week and 3 days in Edinburgh. We would like some advice on day trips from Glencoe. Don't mind long days. Thanks

How old are the boys? Old enough for a bit of hill walking (3/4 hours) but not particularly difficult? Some wonderful routes in the Glen.

Day trips for me would be Oban and a trip on the fery to one of the islands.

A day out to Mallaig (drive or take the train from Fort William)

A trip up Ben Nevis (walk or take the gondola)

If you get a good day a trip to Cuil Bay is really nice

Glencoe is a beautiful place but very remote and primarily good for walking and outdoors activities- not great if you have kids who like to be entertained or who are too small to walk far.

Have a look at this driving tour of the area. undiscoveredscotland.com/ustours/…index.html

How long your children will happily sit in the car and look out at scenery is up to you- but you could visit the Sea Life Centre north of Oban or take a ferry from Oban to the Isle of Mull , take a sea cruise to try to spot dolphins.
