We knew Blair Drummond was going to be a good day out but hadn't expected it to be as good as it was. We took the car round twice and then parked up and had a picnic on a gorgeous day in the shade of a tree. The barbecue facilities there look like a fantastic set up, although we didn't use them , plenty of others were taking advantage and it smelled good! There is also a bbq stand that you can buy bbq food from if you don't want to go the hassle of bringing your own food and doing it yourself! We didn't take advantage of all the rides as it was busy and hot and were trying to stay in the shade as much as possible (being orcadians we aren't used to hot sun!) We went to the Zoo earlier in the week and the Safari park was so much better, the play areas were great, the walking was easier, it was easier to navigate and a better way to spend the day! The sealion show was great (if a little on the warm side on a hot day!), I've seen sealions in action once before and it still amazes me how clever they are! The birds of prey talk was also absolutely fantastic and getting to see Drummond the new baby Snowy owl was the icing on the cake! The Vulture was ace too, I've never like them, but he changed my opinion of them, he was ace! We were cooking hot at times through the day, but there was plenty choice in drinks and ice-cream to help keep us cool. The whole place just felt so well thought out and you really feel like it's all been sorted to give you the best possible experience!
