Many thanks Sophie - we are delighted that you have a full fun day here when you visit - this is our main aim - happy visitors!
Sorry you feel the food is expensive - we monitor our prices constantly and try to always have something for all pockets as we know how money is the big issue when planning visits.

We will look again at our catering and make sure we always have a good selection of low price but good quality options.
Thanks Again.

“It was OK. Could do the whole thing in about 2 hours. The drive there and back took longer and had lovely views.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

It was freezing, but we were wrapped up against it despite the fact it was only October. We had been expecting the cold.

The park is well managed and run, but there really isn't that much to do.

There's a nature walk, a couple of rides, an aerial assault course and an indoor science building.

A word of advice though - take your time going around and try to make the visit stretch, especially with the youngsters.

The science building was like a mini Glasgow science museum and was good fun, but small.

It's in Carrbridge, so a long drive from central Scotland. Despite the fact it was a relatively quick visit, we all enjoyed it.

Firstly - a big thank you for making the trip to visit us - we realise this is a fair haul from Central Scotland and you need a special attraction to justify the trip. I am delighted that you all enjoyed the visit - that is the important thing. We feel that we have a lot of things on offer here for the admission fee and our visitor surveys tell us that by and large our visitors get excellent value and a really enjoyable and memorable day out. Most of the reviews back that up. We do however see it as crucial to keep improving the visit and adding more attractions is high on our list too - making the visit even more immersive challenging and interesting.

We get a large number of our visitors coming from farther afield these days and overall they are delighted with the visit. Our surveys tell us that the average visit length is now around five hours. We take on board what you say though and we will take your comments as another spur to deliver even more to engage, amuse and challenge our guests.

On this subject you might be interested in looking in on our website for news of two new attractions we are planning for opening summer 2013.

Onward and upward!

Thanks again for your visit and for reviewing us. Hope to see you again at some point in the future.

“Freezing Cold but fabulous day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We visited here during the October holidays and the temperarture on arrival was -2! That didn't stop us having a great day out. It's a super place for kids (and adults) who like climbing and trying different things,. There is also a really good treetop walk that is quite informative too. The food was good value for money and the staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful.

Many thanks for your kind comments - we are delighted you all had an enjoyable day despite the cold weather. Wrapping up warm in such weather is the key to enjoying days out - so much better than staying in doors.

Thanks for visiting and thanks again for your review.

“full on family fun”

Excellent day out for all the family. Great value for money. We bought a weeks ticket and were still gutted when it came to the last day. Can't recommend it enough. Will definately visit again.

Hi Glenda

so happy that you had such good value from our weekly ticket - and maybe you are just too far for a season at the extra £4...:)
Hope that you can bring the clan along again in 2013 and do it all again and enjoy some new things we are planning right now!.

Many thanks for you kind comments.

“You can visit it more than once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I have been to Landmark on several occasions with different groups of people including adults teens and young children. I have enjoyed it everytime and would definately recommend it for families especially on a warm day as most of the attractions are outside. I am a big kid and enjoy taking part in all of the activites from rock climbing to the giant slides, so if you like a bit of an adventure I would go for it! Adults might find the nature walk interesting and there is obviously plenty for the children including a rollercoaster. What effected by rating from being higher was the food. The outside food stalls are quite expensive and the quality isn't great so I would recommend taking a picnic if you are going.

Hi Charlotte

Firstly thanks for taking the time to post such a comprehensive review - much appreciated!
Sorry to hear that you think our food offering at the snack bar is not up to scratch for you - this is a bit of a surprise given the many good comments we get in our customer feedback forms. We try to have a selection of 'fast food' type fare here with n offering of home made fare too - soups, stews, curries, baked potatoes, salad too. If you have any details we would be eager to hear from you. In any case we will take your comments on board and keep aiming higher in that area.

So glad that your visits with so many differing age groups are enjoyed by all - this is what we try for - an old cliché is 'for all ages' but it really is what we go for...we especially encourage the child in every person to come out - you obviously find yours on a regular basis - so you are a natural for Landmark!

Many thanks again.
