It’s the bank holiday weekend – meaning an extra day of freedom for (some of) us.
But if that extra day has given you a headache for finding something exciting to do with the family, then look no further than Renfrewshire.
From entertainment centres and thrill rides to the sights and sounds of the great outdoors, we’ve picked five places that will definitely provide an exciting day out for children and the big kids among us.
On your marks, get set and GO to The Experience in Hillington for the ultimate electric karting experience. Reach top speeds of 35mph in seconds with the state-of-the-art karts before arming yourself with a laser blaster and taking on your friends at a game of laser tag. Recharge your batteries at the Refuel Café – which has won Visit Scotland’s Taste Our Best award – and enjoy a range of tasty dishes.
