Combine stunning scenery and great attractions with the freedom of camping or caravanning!

With a wide choice of camping and caravan sites offering a wide range of amenities, there’s something for everyone – and it doesn’t have to mean basic!

Camping barns provide you with a ‘stone tent’ while holiday parks have timber lodges or chalets.

You’ll also find hostels which are fantastic for individuals, families and groups providing shared accommodation – some are also able to offer family rooms.

Many Scottish campsites offer top-of-the-range facilities in beautiful locations in and around the National Parks, a perfect choice for families looking to explore the area.

Ideal for exploring the miles of winding paths and trails, local tea shops, country pubs or the bustling market towns and villages across the area, camping and caravanning holidays offer you the chance to enjoy the area’s stunning landscapes at your own pace and in your own time.

Campsites for caravans and motor homes

When travelling around Scotland in a motorhome, you will need somewhere to park up a for the duration of the time you are there.

Most caravan sites work on a daily pitch basis that you book ahead.


Usually, this will simply be a plot of land for caravans and motorhomes to park up and stay for as long as they have paid for.

This means that amenities such as water and electricity are not provided, so it is important you should travel in a motorhome that has the features you need, or book somewhere that provides these services.


Five berth tents are not the tent accommodation of yesteryear.

They dispose of every conceivable luxury a tent can offer including separate sleeping compartments, living area with kitchenette, outdoor garden furniture with sun loungers and a full inventory.

Indeed, camping has never been so civilised and with a floor area of some 290 sq ft. Family size tents are some of the biggest used.

With three separate bedrooms, these tents will comfortably sleep 5 adults (a 6th berth can be made available).
