Exploring Scotland as a family offers so many wonderful opportunites, from awesome beaches, to bustling cities, fantastic landscape and of course mini-adventures in the great outdoors.  Whether you are just looking for something to do at the weekend or visiting Scotland from another country, In Your Element has lots to tempt you.

  • For small family groups we offer a range of scheduled activities on fixed dates at fixed locations.  These can be booked online in advance.
    For larger family groups (typically 6 or more) we also offer private, tailor-made activity experiences.  These can be at locations across Scotland, with more flexibility over dates and times.  For large family gatherings a big Highland Games event can go down a treat!

We also offer self-guided options, for example hiring canoe or kayak equipment and going on your own mini-expedition.
