ScotSpirit Day Trips 2017

In partnership with VisitScotland, and through the generosity of leading attractions and transport providers across Scotland, we are able to offer a wide range of fun and exciting day trips in 2017 for free as part of our ScotSpirit project. Families could visit world famous sites like Edinburgh or Stirling Castles, go on a group trip to Loch Katrine, be inspired at the Glasgow Science Centre, or take a ferry over to Arran to see Brodick Castle.

Who are the day trips for and how many families can I apply for?

Families on low income who haven’t had a break this year and would be unlikely to afford a day out. While we do have group trips available, most trips will require families to be able to travel to and visit an attraction independently, please consider this when making your applications. You can apply for as many families as you need to but families cannot benefit twice.

Once we’ve had your application we’ll see if we have tickets available and be in touch.

When are the trips?

Trips will takes place in September and October.

What’s available?

We have day trips available for individual families.

We cannot offer a contribution towards expenses with any of these trips.

Individual family trips:

Please only apply through the Family Holiday Association application form below, do not contact attractions or purchase tickets direct.

How will the tickets be allocated?

On a first come first served basis. We anticipate tickets to go quickly so recommend applying as soon as possible.
