A Stonking Stomp Around Stirling Castle #NoDullDays

Bassetts multivitamins review

This is a sponsored post.

We absolutely love getting out and having fun all year round.  So we don’t stop when autumn and winter arrive!  Instead we put on our wellies, layers, waterproofs or even snowsuits and get outside for some good old family fun.

For our family there is nothing that we enjoy more than a great day out at a castle, we have visited the majority of castles in our little area of Scotland along with plenty further afield.  One of our favourites is Stirling Castle, not just because it’s local to us but there is so much to see and do.

So what else were we to do on a beautifully sunny autumn day, but head to the castle!

Stirling Castle

Queen Anne's garden

The boys first port of call is to race around Queen Anne’s Garden and stare at the amazing view.  My eldest was amazed at how far we could see.  It’s not every day that it’s so clear when you are standing at Stirling Castle, more often than not we are in the mist!!

Stirling Castle is perfect for kids, there is so much to explore and plenty of wide grassy places to run around on and let out steam.  There are even some nice rocky areas down by the Tapestry Exhibition and a lot of walls to walk (or in our case, run) along.

The buildings are full of history and we always need to stop in the Queen’s Bedchamber to listen to the actor there.  They are always amazing at interacting with the children and every time we visit we learn something new.  But our eldests favourite rooms are the vaults where there are various activities for the children and we spent plenty of time playing various games there.

Check out this gorgeous rainbow we saw as we left the castle, my little rainbow jacket person was particularly impressed to be ‘matching’ the sky!

Keeping The Fun Going

After the afternoon at the castle our eldest had his first ever drama class and he came out buzzing, it was great fun and he couldn’t wait to go again.  Whilst he was off being a jungle animal littlest and I played in a nearby woodland, chucking leaves in the air and finding bugs to watch.  The little things really make a day special.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep the kids going through a long day like that.  Which is exactly why we have started to ensure that our kids take a multivitamin every day.  They need that Vitamin D and Calcium for healthy muscle functions, teeth and bones.  It’s especially important in Scotland where we get less sunlight and need that vitamin D boost, in fact the department of health now advises that everyone in the UK should take a Vitamin D supplement over the autumn and winter.

    This looks great fun, I love the fact it caters so well for children and the actors take the time to engage them as well. It’s the best way for them to learn. We use the vitamins to keep us going through the chaos too. My eldest does drama, it turned her from a timid, shy little tot into a confident little loudmouth. Lookout 😉
