Day Trips at Gartmore: 5 things you need to know
Did you know that Gartmore House is now offering day trips? We’ve been busy bees behind the scenes at these past few months and we recently launched our 2022 programme which is full to bursting with new art, craft, and activity holidays for you to try. But that’s not all we’ve been up to. Those of you with keen eyes might have noticed that we have an exciting, new programme of events on offer for accompanying guests starting in 2022. These accompanying guests will now have the option of taking part in a week-long package of day trips around Scotland!
But this is all new! You’re bound to have day trip questions and that’s why we’ve put together this blog to try and answer as many of your questions as possible.
Who are the day trips for?
Our day trips are for anyone who wants to come to Gartmore House with their crafty pal but doesn’t want to participate in one of our courses. We know that many of you love bringing friends, family, and partners with you when you join us for one of our courses, but are often at a loss for what they can do while you’re busy crafting. With this selection of day trips, they will experience Scotland in a whole new way during your stay. All the more to catch up on over dinner, wouldn’t you agree!
Who will run the day trips?
A professional, accredited guide runs all of our day trips and they lead the group out each day by minibus.
Do you have to do the whole week?
No. You are welcome to choose individual days in lieu of the whole package. These are priced at £300 per day and any combination of them can be added at checkout.
Where will they go?
Both near and far! Loch Lomond and the Trossachs is positively brimming with history and you don’t have to go far to find it. With days dedicated specifically to Scottish history, local interest, the Highlands, and Edinburgh, there really is something for everybody. There will be plenty of castles, lochs, glens, and even the chance for a dram or two. What’s not to love?
What else can they do?
If your accompanying guest doesn’t fancy any of the day trips, or if there is a day where they feel like doing something different, we can point them towards many amazing activities around the local area. With such a beautiful setting all around us, there are plenty of opportunities for cycling, golfing, fishing, and hiking right on our doorstep.
And there you have it. Everything you need to know about our new day trips programme. We can’t wait to share our day trips with you all in 2022!
