Scotland
Dramatic mountains, stunning coastlines and historic sites down the ages, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Scotland. Read More...

Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on on one of our caravan holidays in Scotland.

1. Ride on the West Highland railway
Sit back and enjoy the views on one of Britain’s most scenic railway lines – the West Highland Railway. Following the route of the Road to the Isles from Fort William to Mallaig on the coast, the line takes in the Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous after its regular appearance in the Harry Potter films crossed by the Hogwarts Express train.

2. Head out to one of the wildlife wonders of the world
The Bass Rock has been described by Sir David Attenborough as ‘one of the 12 wildlife wonders of the world’. This sea-bird sanctuary is one of the most distinctive landmarks in Scotland, jutting out abruptly from the Firth of Forth. There are daily boat trips but landings on Bass Rock itself are weather-permitting only.

3. Dolphin watch from the beach
There are many dolphin watch cruises offshore, but few places where they can be observed from the coast. The Black Isle is a peninsula with a wild east-facing coastline jutting out into the Moray Firth. From the shore at North Kessock, just across the bridge from Inverness and Fortrose a little further up the isle, dolphins can be observed.

4. Cycle through the Trossachs
The 60-mile Lowland Highland Trail runs through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. Stretching from close to Loch Lomond to the shores of Loch Tay, the route crosses the Highland Boundary Fault offering a great variety of landscapes. It uses forest tracks, traffic-free trails and minor roads and is regarded as one of the highlights of the National Cycle Network.

5. Sail ‘Doon The Watter’
For generations of Scots sailing ‘doon the watter’ was a tradition. In the days before affordable travel, generations of Glasgow families would escape from city life by sailing down the Clyde to the genteel seaside towns on the river’s banks onboard one of dozens of paddle steamers. You may be lucky enough to enjoy a trip on the Waverley, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. If not, there are still ample opportunities to take to the waters, crossing perhaps to the Isle of Bute, Dunoon, or Tighnabruaich.

6. Climb a Munro
The Munros are the mountains in Scotland over 3000 feet high. Many of the nearly 300 peaks are in remote locations and should only be tackled by experienced hill-walkers. However, Schiehallion is of Scotland’s best-known hills and one of the easiest Munros to climb on a fine summer’s day. The mystical mountain (translated as the Fairy Hill of the Caledonians) overlooks Loch Rannoch, from where its famous conical appearance is apparent.

7. Join in the cultural celebrations at a Highland gathering
Taking place around Scotland during the summer months, Highland games provide a unique combination of culture, sport and social entertainment. Highland games attract competitors from around the world, as well as locals taking part in everything from traditional heavy athletics events like tug-o-war and caber tossing to Highland dance competitions, piping, and field and track events. From May to September a full programme of Highland games takes place in small towns and villages across the country as well as those within the grounds of famed castles, so there are plenty to choose from.

8. Have a round at the home of golf
St Andrews is the spiritual home of golf and over the years the famed Old Course has played host to the world’s best players at many different championships. It is easier to obtain a tee time on the Old Course than many might think, as long as you have a suitable handicap. The town on the Fife coast boasts more than ten courses, to suit all abilities, with other internationally renowned golfing destinations like Gleneagles and Carnoustie within easy reach.

9. Get to know The Bard
The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, Ayrshire offers a unique encounter with Scotland’s favourite son. The National Trust of Scotland museum comprises the famous Burns Cottage where the poet was born, the historic landmarks where he set his greatest work, the elegant monument and gardens created in his honour and a modern museum housing the world’s most important collection of his life and works.

10. Ride some of the UKs best mountain bike trails
Southern Scotland is one of the world’s top mountain-biking destinations. The famous 7stanes mountain bike centres offer trails for all skill levels – everything from beginners’ routes to extreme downhill at different locations across the region.
