Don't Let the Rain Ruin Your Summer

If the weather is behaving in its usual Scottish self and it’s chucking it down, it doesn’t have to ruin your day! We’ve got a bunch of ideas for things you can do when the weather isn’t so great.

Go to the cinema

Grab your Young Scot card, some popcorn and go see a film!

There are loads of great films out this year – some of the ones we've been looking forward to at Young Scot HQ are Men in Black: International, Toy Story 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home, which are all out over summertime! So make use of your discount with Young Scot and see this years biggest blockbusters at Cineworld and Vue cinemas.

Build a fort

Grab cushions, sheets and blankets, and build a comfy fort indoors. Build it high enough so you can bring your laptop in to watch movies.

It’s definitely a cosy way to forget about the horrible weather outside!

Mosey round a museum

Not only do you get out the house, it’s indoors, plus you can learn a thing or two!

Why not take a trip to the Glasgow Science Centre where you can go inside a planetarium? Or you can also get £1 admission into National Trust for Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland sites! 


What better way to warm up than to get your body moving? We have a bunch of ten minute workouts that will work up a sweat, boost your mood and make you forget all about the rain outside.
