Often our customers are after that step away from normal life and the hustle that comes with it. So with our Scottish Tourer Luxury Motorhomes you can take yourself away from that life and set yourself up somewhere tranquil, peaceful and re gather, regroup and recharge. Often our customers think that these locations are like gold dust of difficult to find however once you know where they are, they are actually easy to locate and they make your holiday with us even more special. The luxury of being able to choose these spots is it is also free and gives you space to park up rather than being confined to smaller camping spots. The only thing we tell everyone that comes through Scottish Tourer is to “leave only footprints and memories behind”, leave where you are with no trace of you being there to preserve Scotland’s beautiful landscapes and countryside.
Many of our customers do choose to wild camp however many like the comfort and the options of what a campsite can offer. Many of these are simply stunning and really worth a visit if you don’t fancy wild camping. We have compiled some of our favourite campsites in Scotland.
Linnhe Lochside Holidays Fort William is just a fantastic place to set up a base for the evening or even a few depending on your holiday plans. Located in the fabulous Lochaber region of Fort William. There is so much to do here if your after an active holiday. Here you have the luxury of hard standing pitches so no worries about getting stuck or it being wet. We always find this a bonus especially for dragging in grass, mud on your feet. This location is really suited to a late year break when the weather is even more unpredictable and means you can still enjoy the great outdoors but not have that added worry about getting stuck somewhere.
Aberfeldy is just a stones throw away from our depot in Perth. Here you can immerse yourself into the forests and woodlands of which there is over 200,000 acres to get through. There is so much to do in Aberfeldy itself to they have lovely local shops selling hand crafted nad unique products along with lovely cafes to eat at and the walking is some of the best to find anywhere in Scotland. Choose to wild camp here or head to the camp site. Both have so much to offer.
If you plan a trip to the Safari Park at Blair Drummond the caravan park here is outstanding and has so much literally at your feet. Spend a day at the safari park, go for some water sports at Loch Lomond, perhaps a boat trip or even some hill walking at Ben Lomond. There is something for everyone and is a place that if not everyone wants to do the same thing there is something to be found for everyone you have with you. One of the main highlights at this caravan park is the washing facilities which i often find helpful especially if you have small children or have been out exploring and things are muddy. Helps take away some stress and also the amount of clothes you need to pack in the first place. Enjoy a BBQ while you wash and dry your clothes all ready for the next adventure.
One of the most mindful places to sit is the harbour. The noise of the water, the birds and the boats coming in. If you happen to be in the Border, Eyemouth is really worth a visit. Here the village is compact yet complete with all you need to have a lovely day breathing in the sea air. The caravan park has all your usual facilities including a laundrette as we have mentioned before this is something i tend to look for if we choose not to wild camp some evenings. Within the borders choose to set your sites on Glentress biking trails, Melrose Abbey or perhaps the St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve. Again there is really so much to explore it isn’t restrictive to what everyone wishes to do.
If is a beach location you are after Fraserburgh has some outstanding sandy beaches and some of the best country walks on offer. This park is open from April to October so being mindful if you have a trip booked later in the year this may not be an option for you. We love a beach trip, the fresh air, the opportunities to build castles, moats, dens and literally just to walk and be with the noise and the sand is often enough to ground us to appreciate our surroundings.
Every location in Scotland will have a caravan park close by or a stones throw from where you want to be. Don’t feel to restricted if you don’t fancy wild camping, feel a bit nervous or want to do every second night at a campsite. There is still so much to see, do and explore even within the confines of a park. Often there are positives to a park especially if you have young children who want and need to run off some excess energy or just to restore your own batteries and not worry about how much water or battery power you have left.
In Scotland we are lucky to have such an abundance of outdoor pursuits on our door step, set amongst some of the most beautiful landscape and all within easy driving reach when combined with a motorhome you can enjoy a holiday while experience some adrenaline based activities.
