We’ve partnered with the National Trust for Scotland to create unforgettable activities for the whole family.  

Both partners appreciate how valuable spending time together as a family is, and together have created the Lidl Book of Big Adventures series. This free seasonal booklet is packed with fun things to do, amazing places to visit and activities that will delight the whole family, whatever the weather.

The National Trust for Scotland is the conservation charity that protects so much of what makes Scotland special. From coastlines to castles, art to architecture, wildlife to wildernesses, the charity tells the stories of Scotland’s national and natural treasures.

The free booklet can be picked up at participating National Trust for Scotland places and at Scottish Lidl stores. To find out more, click here

Big on autumn

Autumn Booklet 2020

Our sixth edition of the Lidl Book of Big Adventures is now here, ready to guide you through autumn come rain or shine. We have plenty of fun activities to keep your children entertained this season from indoor crafts and cooking projects to getting outdoors and enjoying the changing colours and falling leaves. Don’t forget to share photos with us on Instagram by tagging @lidlgb and @nationaltrustforscotland 


Autumn leaves are a brilliant resource for making animal collages, try our fun, 3-step activity below.

What you will need:

A handful of leaves (collected from your Autumnal walk)
1 X Child Friendly Glue Stick 
1 X Child Friendly Scissors

1 X Coloured paper for the background and your hedgehog's face

  • Step 1

    Cut out a roughly triangular shape for your hedgehog’s snout and a small round nose. Stick them down on coloured paper.

  • Step 2

    Arrange your leaves so that the pointy ends point upwards around the hedgehog’s back, gluing down as you go.

  • Step 3

    Add more layers from the top to the bottom and then finish off with a googly eye. Then perhaps your hedgehog would like a friend?

3 ghostly castles

Head to Aberdeenshire to see some of Scotland’s spookiest-looking buildings

  • Drum Castle

    A few years ago, staff at this castle thought they’d photographed a ghost!

  • Fyvie Castle

    Fyvie is allegedly one of the National Trust for Scotland’s most haunted buildings.

  • Crathes Castle

    Queen Victoria apparently saw the ghost of a green lady when she visited here.
