Top Five Spots for the Family on the Heart 200

From teeny tots to active teens, Scotland’s heartland comprises a host of activities with beautiful, scenic roads in between. Make the most of the October holidays and find something for the whole family in our list of the top five activities on the Heart 200.

The Heart 200 is a 200-mile round trip throughout the central belt and lower Highlands of Scotland. This route provides the perfect opportunity to make the most of one of Roseisle’s luxury campervans.

Go Ape

Nestled in the Trossachs National Park, on the south-east of the Heart 200, lies Go Ape Aberfoyle

Many will be familiar with the Go Ape brand as it boasts 34 locations throughout the UK; however, the Aberfoyle location is home to some of the longest ziplines and tallest treetops in the country. 

With cycling routes and even a live video feed to get up close and personal with the wildlife, Go Ape offers plenty of fun for all ages.

Willowgate Activity Centre

Variety is the spice of life, and a variety of activities is what Willowgate Activity Centre has to offer.

While current restrictions have limited the centre to only water activities there is still plenty to do. Activities such as lagoon sessions, river tours and open water swimming remain open.

Keep an eye on the centre’s Facebook page for updates on activities reopening; or, feel the chill with a dip in the open waters this October!

Blair Castle

Roseisle Heart 200 Blair Castle

Tranquil woodlands and sculpture trails are on offer at Blair Castle. If you’re looking for a fun way to tire out energetic children, then a beautiful walk through the castle grounds might be just the ticket. 

Take an afternoon out of your motorhome and stretch your legs around this gorgeous estate.

If the guided castle tour sounds more up your street, be sure to hurry as the tours only run until the end of October.

Highland Fling Bungee

Take the plunge with Highland Fling Bungee. The daredevils in the family will be sure to appreciate this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

Situated in Killiecrankie, Pitlochry, this spot is one of the more northerly points on the Heart 200.

With regular, tandem and even night bungee jumps, you can really mix it up. The kids won’t feel left out either, as there are family swings, bungees and water rafting available.   

Loch Leven Nature Reserve

Roseisle Heart 200 Loch Leven

Scaling the excitement back a little and moving towards a more peaceful activity, Loch Leven Nature Reserve offers scenic walks and cycle routes. 

The area is monitored by the RSPB, so you can expect to spot some incredible wildlife. Autumn usually beckons sightings of the lapwing and swallow, with swans and geese returning to the loch from Iceland. 

Another perfect excuse to pull over in your motorhome and appreciate the incredible splendour the heartland of Scotland has to offer!
