Kid's Zone

Passport to Scotland Tent
This is your child’s entrance to the fascinating world of Scottish Heritage and Tradition. Children can pick up a “Scottish Passport” and as they explore the various clans of Scotland they can have clan representatives stamp it. A special token awaits each child who completes the stamp requirement.

Come meet and play games with your hometown curlers in the Kid’s Zone!
