Gleneagles is to work with Scott Dunn to introduce one of its kids’ clubs in anticipation of greater desire for staycations this year.
The Explorers Kids Club will be the first UK venture for the brand and will be launched at the Scottish estate from 1 August.
The programme for children will include an extensive range of activities and country pursuits within the 850-acre estate catering for age groups from four months to mid-teens.
Based in The Trail Yard, a new country activities hub, and across the wider estate, highlights will include Fairy & Dragon Hunts for Globetrotters (four months to two years); while older children (Pioneers: 8-11 years and Crew: 11+ years) can try tree climbing, falconry, clay pigeon shooting, off-roading on ArgoCats and compete in their very own version of the Highland Games.
Indoor options include Little Glen, a creche for toddlers with an indoor treehouse and slide, play stables with hobby horses and the Gleneagles Express railway carriage. The Den is a recreational hangout for young teenagers, featuring a relaxed cinema room, arts and crafts, pool and air hockey and super-sized board games.
The Explorers’ Programme runs daily from 10am-3 pm, with lunch included, accommodating children in four age groups, and will be led by the Gleneagles team with a Scott Dunn representative onsite. The Explorers Kids Club at Gleneagles starts from £5,595 for a family of four for five nights, including breakfast.
Gleneagles itself will be open from 15 July, and added it has also “developed a meticulous new set of safety protocols, to provide the highest standards of safety at all times”.
