Storybook Glen, Maryculter

A hidden valley containing lots of nursery rhyme characters and other children's favourites. We went as 3 generations and all enjoyed ourselves.

You descend either steps or a pushchair slope into the landscaped gardens. At this time of year there was a mass of rhododendrons of varying colours all over the place. The gardens are designed so that there are surprises round each corner and very few straight lines.

Many of the models have recently been freshly painted but others were looking rather sad. The children didn't seem to notice though! They were too busy exploring the several mini castles and other buildings.

Other highlights included Ben the Highland Cow and the playground. With virtually only our family there they had free rein on the equipment. My son's favourite was the helter skelter and my daughter loved the intriguing climbing frames.

Here are a few photos of our day:
