It is almost unfortunate that we have a closing time, as children will want to stay outside until all hours on our woodland trails and outdoor adventure playground. Our trails are inviting in rain or shine – just be sure to bring the wellies – and Formartine's provides a great space for children to learn and explore.

Our playground allows children to climb, jump, swing and explore to their heart’s content. The secure play area features  a tree house with a telescope and periscope – all accessible by rock wall or ladder – slides and monkey bars. The little ones will also adore our funky tyre swings, made in animal shapes.    If you look hard enough there is lots to play on in the woods as well.
