Fun for Kids
At Locherlour Estates we welcome children & babies with open arms, in fact, over 65% of our guests who stay with us have children and/or babies. All our properties have proper solid cots and highchairs, along with children's books and toys. We want everyone who stays with us to have fun and enjoy abit to luxury.
Crieff and the surrounding area is packed with activities for children. The following are some of own suggestions, certainly one which our son Ruairi (aged 10) loves to do, all of which have been tested and certified by the wee man:
