Indoor activities at Allan Bank 

Step inside a bustling family home with something to do in every room. There’s a place to sit by the fire and read a book and watch the red squirrels; a room to play dress up with your little ones; somewhere to pick up a pencil or a paintbrush and take inspiration from our 360 countryside views; a space to sit and knit; or somewhere to tuck into a picnic with a hot drink.
