The Queen from Snow White and her magic mirror

Storybook Glen is the number one place to take your kids during the holidays or even just for a weekend trip!

If you read your kids bedtime stories, or you were read stories as a child, you too will love Storybook Glen. Set on 28 acres overlooking the spectacular Royal Deeside, it makes for a perfect day out with the whole family.

The glen showcases over 100 of your favourite nursery rhyme and fairytale characters set within a valley or ‘glen’. The attraction is aimed primarily at younger children, but can be fun for everyone!

The best time to visit is during the summer months when the weather suits a nice barbecue or picnic to complete the day. If a barbecue isn’t your thing or if the weather doesn’t permit a picnic then the Storybook Glen has a lovely café that sells fresh food.

The glen is covered with a variety of flowers and woodland areas, as well as luscious waterfalls for visitors to discover. You can explore the nature and wildlife of Royal Deeside.
