Scottish families are getting set for big adventures across Dumfries and Galloway this summer, as conservation charity the National Trust for Scotland and supermarket chain Lidl have teamed up to get families exploring Scotland and enjoying its national and natural treasures.
The teams at the Trust and Lidl have put their heads together to create the Lidl Book of Big Adventures series – a seasonal booklet that’s full of ideas for spending fun family time together in Scotland.
The first ever edition launched this week, as the Scottish school holidays get underway and families are making their summer plans.
Copies are available to pick up at the Trust’s Broughton House in Kirkcudbright, Thomas Carlyle’s Birthplace in Ecclefechan and Threave Garden near Castle Douglas and dozens of other Trust places across Scotland, as well as at all Scottish Lidl stores.
Issued seasonally, the Lidl Book of Big Adventures has ideas for how the Trust’s places, events and experts can combine with the products offered by Lidl to add up to great family activities.
Activities featured in the Summer booklet include inspiration for perfect picnics, a wildlife spotting game and a guide to growing greenery for wee gardeners.
Children can collect stickers from Trust places as they tick off the big adventures that they complete.
Ross Millar, Regional Director at Lidl comments “We know how valuable spending time together as a family is. It’s for this reason that we have created the Lidl Book of Big Adventures series which is full of ideas for spending fun family time together and supports our customers in leading healthy and active lifestyles. We hope that people have trolley loads of fun exploring the Scottish landmarks this summer.”
Mark Bishop, Director of Customer & Cause for the National Trust for Scotland said: “From castles to coastlines, art to architecture, wildlife to wilderness, there is so much to explore and enjoy across Scotland. We’re looking forward to welcoming families on their travels to our beautiful places, as they spend time together experiencing what they love about Scotland.”
