About The Magical Santa’s Grotto at Loch Lomond Shores

Santa Claus is coming to Loch Lomond Shores!

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a visit to Santa. Come and see Santa at his magical loch-side residence, with a peek into the Elves’ Workshop, and a trip on the Santa Train to Santa’s Grotto to visit the man himself.

This experience is new for 2017 and includes:

• Arrival area for ticketholders, with free refreshments and Christmas movie while you wait

• Magical story-telling by the Elves

• The magical toy room where children can see some of the gifts Santa will be delivering this Christmas

• Letter writing, so that the children can give Santa their list when they meet him

You’ll then board the ‘Loch Lomond Shores Express Train’. A short ‘train’ ride will take you to Santa’s grotto, where the elves will take you to Santa. You’ll be able to give Santa your letter and – if you’ve been really good! – get an early Christmas present.

Booking early to avoid disappointment is recommended.

Professional photographs with Santa are available.
