It may only be November but I am fully festive already! We were invited along over the weekend to the fabulous Illuminight by Lidl at Dean Castle and what a perfect start to the festive season it was.
A short drive from Glasgow (about 35 minutes from the Southside where we are) and you will reach Dean Castle in Kilmarnock. We have been down here a few times to wander the gardens, see the animals and eat in their cute lil cabin style cafe.
Currently it is transformed in the evenings for a magical woodland walk full of lights and sounds. You can get tickets Here and it’s running until right through til Sunday 18th November.
In traditional Christmas keeno mode I had a mulled wine at one of the cosy warm up stations. There are two of these where you can get pizza, hot chocolate and even toast your own marshmallows too!! It was a really fun evening despite the rain (wrap up with lots of layers!) and we will definitely be back next year.
*Our tickets to this were a gift but given with no obligation to share our experience. We just enjoyed it so much and thought it may be a nice thing for other families to do or maybe a cheeky date idea.*
