If you’re at a loose end with the kids this summer, then head to Hoodles at Oldmeldrum. The multi award-winning soft play and adventure centre is the perfect place for kids to burn off excess energy on the trampolines, go-karts, grass sledges, slides, swings, trikes, wooden fort or the new Flying Fox zip wire. Indoors, the Playbarn soft play area includes slides, tubes and lots to clamber over, with a special section for the under twos. It’s a great choice for a birthday party. When everyone is exhausted, you can recharge your batteries in the café over some tempting home-made goodies or nine yummy flavours of Mackie’s handmade ice cream. From August, you can even pick up some farm fresh, locally grown vegetables produced at Mains of Leask!
