PARENTS and guardians in Stirling could take advantage of a promotion to help keep children entertained for the remainder of the school holidays.

ScotRail has teamed up with some key attractions, like the Wallace Monument and Battle of Bannockburn, in a bid to ensure that some adventures are more purse-friendly.

With the company's Kids Go Free tickets children can travel on the train for nothing with each paying adult.

And if this ticket is presented at venues participating in the holiday scheme, one child can benefit from a free or discounted visit.

The Destination Decider is packed with fun things to do that kids will love – Edinburgh Zoo, Deep Sea World, Loch Lomond Sea Life Aquarium and The Edinburgh Dungeon. 

For those looking for a bit of fast paced action, there is Go Ape or go sledging at Glasgow Snow Factor.

ScotRail launched the promotion after it commissioned some research to understand how they could support parents during the holidays. 

It found a key concern was the number of hours their children spent in front of screens.

Graham Heald, head of customer experience and hospitality at ScotRail, said: “We know the school holidays are an expensive time and trying to find ways to keep the kids entertained can be challenging, so we commissioned our survey to understand how we could support and help boost the summer fun with minimum prep for parents.

“As our survey shows, gaming is obviously really popular with kids in Scotland, but parents want them to spend more time outdoors. 

"Our Destination Decider puts the power of day plans in the kids’ hands, with parents not under pressure to cough up large entrance fees.

“Our Kids Go Free ticket entitles up to two children aged 5-15 to travel for free with an adult and we’ve got deals in place with 25 operators in Scotland to offer free or discounted entry, when showing your train ticket from that day.

“We’d encourage all parents to download the itinerary and challenge their kids to put the consoles down and embrace the real world and all that can be enjoyed and accessed by train.”

Up to two kids aged five-15 can travel for free with a paying adult and additional discounts on entry are on offer at 25 attractions, by showing your train ticket from that day.
