Summer at Almond Valley
This summer at Almond Valley, families can channel their inner adventurer and fine tune their survival skills by building their very own den. An area of the farm park will be set up with everything a young Bear Grylls will need including hammocks, wood, sticks, netting and tarps. Adventures are invited to take a snap of their creations and share it on the Almond Valley social media channels for a chance for their photo to be showcased on the wall of fame.
Morag’s Tearoom will be serving up some delicious salads made with fresh produce from the on-site poly tunnels. There will be new creations weekly based on seasonal herbs and vegetables. Keep an eye out on social media to see what’s on offer when you visit.
There is also a chance to paint your own forgotten fossils at Almond Valley. Adults and children across Scotland have been painting rocks and stones and leaving them in places to be found be others such as parks and tourist spots. Almond Valley has played host to many hidden rocks already so thought we’d make it easier for guests and allow them to paint their own while they’re visiting.
The new fossils that you create can be taken home, or hidden somewhere in the farm or anywhere you like. Rocks and paints will be provided and we encourage painters to include the hashtag #forgottenfossils on their rock to track its journey on social media.
And as always, there are animal encounters, tractors and train rides and adventure play. And even if it rains, you can explore the interactive Shale Oil Museum to have fun and keep dry, as well as soft play and other indoor activities.
Robin Chesters, Almond Valley, said: “Summer is a fantastic time to visit Almond Valley and we wanted to create some fun events and activities that the whole family can enjoy. We have plenty to do indoors and out so our unpredictable weather shouldn’t be a problem.”
