Take the train … and enjoy a child-free break in Scotland

Posted on

It’s back to school for kids in Scotland, meaning it’s time for grandparents to take a well-earned break from babysitting and for the child-free to reclaim Scotland’s most beautiful cities.

With the kids back in school, Scotland’s cities are likely to be a little quieter – making them the ideal spot for grandparents and the child-free who’ve had enough of the little darlings this summer.

But that doesn’t mean there’s not fun to be had, as there’s still plenty going on in Scotland’s biggest cities to keep grown-ups entertained.
