Scotland’s rugged natural beauty, peaceful lochs, misty glens, heather-covered Munros and wide open spaces all cry out to be visited and explored! Camping in Scotland, or perhaps caravanning in Scotland, are the perfect ways to explore this outdoor adventure park.

Finding the Best Campsites in Scotland

There is a bewildering choice of campsites in Scotland on the internet, so how do you find the best camping or caravan sites in Scotland to suit your needs? Word of mouth or personal recommendations are always good, or check reviews from past campers before booking.

Some of our recommended campsites in Scotland are located in the stunning Cairngorms National Park, the largest in the UK. Top camping and caravan parks within the national park include the following:

Grantown-on-Spey Caravan Park has manicured pitches in an area known for its salmon and trout fishing. 

Ballater Caravan Park in Aberdeenshire is close to the River Dee, another fine salmon river. It is a top choice for family camping in Scotland with a children’s play area, close to golf, Balmoral Castle and Lochnager Distillery. Ballater has 35 pitches for tents and campervans and 40 hard-standing pitches with electric hook-ups for touring caravans. 

South of the Cairngorms, Faskally Caravan Park is one of the most well-located caravan parks in Scotland, situated in the Tay Forest, close to Pitlochry and the Blair Athol Distillery for tours and tastings. 

Top Holiday Parks in Scotland’s Galloway Forest Park

Galloway Forest Park is particularly popular for family campsites in Scotland with sites open from mid-February to late October. It’s a wonderful location for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife spotting, fishing and stargazing. The forest is home to Scotland’s first Dark Sky Park which provides near total darkness for spotting up to 7,000 stars and planets with the naked eye. 

Just south of the forest, camping breaks in Scotland can be enjoyed at Auchenlarie Holiday Park, overlooking picturesque Wigtown Bay. As well as touring and camping sites, the holiday park has some of the most popular glamping pods in Scotland. It is located right on the beach near Carsluith Castle and has a shop, sports bar and restaurant onsite.

Anwoth Holiday Park also offers a full range of camping and caravan pitches. With excellent amenities, this peaceful holiday park is in Scotland’s Gatehouse of Fleet at the southern edge of Galloway Forest Park. 

With so many outdoor activities, places to visit and things to do, why not book your next camping or caravan holiday in Scotland? You’ll find some great campsites and glamping deals in Scotland’s most scenic areas for a totally relaxing getaway.
