A SCOTTISH shopping centre has created an indoor forest as part of its summer activities programme.

Along with an indoor beach, the “Magical Forest” is running every day at intu Braehead from now until August 11.

Children can go deep into the forest and find a Fairy House to play in, make a wish at the Wishing Well, build their own soft-play log shelter, have fun with musical percussion instruments, go across the Rainbow Bridge and down the slide then take a selfie with a unicorn that’s hiding in the forest.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, Christine Macdonald said: “Youngsters will have a fabulous time wandering in the Magical Forest and they can let their imaginations run wild as well as having lots of fun.

“There’s even a tiny fairy hidden in the forest and the kids will love it when they find her.”

The indoor beach includes with lots of sand, buckets and spades and beach games for children to play.
