This year comes with a unique feature for Families!

Every child will receive its own passport to go to the "Wee Highlander Zone" of Scotland. The passport, which includes a colouring book and mind games, will help children travel through a kid friendly environment and participate in a series of activities to become a Wee Highlander. There will be crafting, dancing, kid's heavy events and sword fighting classes all day.

Accept the challenge and become a Wee Highlander for the day!
