Family Trip to Scotland suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm new to the forum and looking for advice. I'm planning a surprise trip for my family next June to Scotland. The main part of the trip is golf in St. Andrews for my husband and 7 (will be 8 next year) son. I'm not sure what else to plan as we will likely only be there for about 7 days. Here are some of my "must" haves based on our last european vacation:

Open to flying in one location and traveling across the country to fly out elsewhere
Looking to have 2 central points/hotels for the trip. Ideally central location where we can plan day trips. this makes it easier than checking in and out of hotels along the way.
St. Andrews is a must for golf, so ideally we would stay there for one of our two locations. Any recommended high end hotels that are kid friendly? Is the Old Course Hotel a good choice?

what else would make for a good itinerary and another good location to stay. Edinborough is one place I've been looking, but not sure all the geography yet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For context, we were in Ireland a few years back and stayed at The Europe and absolutely loved it there. I'm not sure if there are places similar in Scotland.
thanks.
