Touring in Scotland
For Caravans, Motorhomes and Campers
Thistle Holiday Parks are great for camping, for touring caravans and for motorhomes. The Parks are all graded by VisitScotland 4 or 5 stars, so among the best in Scotland Good facilities, hard-standing pitches (often with services close-by) all well maintained. Campers are welcome on most of our parks, but if you are bringing a tent, you should tell the park how big it is so that they can allocate space; there may be a charge for very large tents or for awnings. Ask about this when you book.
The parks' facilities include:
- shower and toilet blocks
- launderette and areas for preparing food and for washing up
- chemical disposal units. Some have them also for motorhomes.
- many of the pitches are on firm ground and some pitches with hook-ups to services
New for 2013 is that our parks can now also show if they have seasonal pitches available or wigwams for campers.
Some parks have leisure facilities e.g. swimming pool, games room, bar and restaurant, and entertainment.
Parks are open from Easter to end October; some for longer and some all year.
Tents Welcome: Many of our Parks welcome tents and some set aside an area for campers.
They may ask the size of your tent because the extra-large ones need more space.Look for the tent symbol on the entries.
Children Welcome: Parks have safe play areas outside; some have a games room; some offer special entertainment in the school holidays.
Pets Welcome: Many parks welcome pets; look for the dog symbol on the entries.
Availability: To check which parks have space on your dates, you can send one e.mail from our website to all the parks
Booking: In peak season and for public holidays, it's a good idea to book your space in advance.
