If you are looking for ideas on where to go and where to stay in Scotland, here are two itineraries. We recommend that you spend more than one night in each of these parks so you can get to know the area.
1. The Highland and the Outer Hebrides From Edinburgh and Glasgow you can head north on the A9 to Highland Perthshire - Pitlochry and Blair Atholl (where there is a lovely caravan park right by Blair Castle. Highland Perthshire has mountain scenery and distilleries and wildlife, so worth spending time here. From Blair Atholl it's only a couple of hours to Inverness, but keep driving up the A9 to the tiny village of Evanton and Black Rock Caravan Park - small and friendly, a good place from which to explore further north to Golspie and Brora (Dunrobin Castle) and inland to Rogie Falls. This is a great area for wildlife watching..
From Black Rock on the east coast, head west towards Ullapool and then south to Gairloch, a small town, where you will find the Sands Caravan Park, at the end of a small road, right by the dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. The Park is well laid out so that you have plenty of space to enjoy the tranquillity and the amazing sunsets. There are wildlife boat trips from Gairloch and, a few miles to the north is the beautiful National Trust for Scotland Inverewe Garden - one of the most amazing in Scotland.
From Ullapool it's a two-hour ferry trip to Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (with CalMac Ferries). Near the main town of Lewis is Laxdale Caravan Park from where you can visit the Calanais Standing Stones, the Black House and even down into Harris, part of the same island, but so different in landscape.
From the Outer Hebrides, you can return to Uig on Skye and back to the mainland to continue your trip via Fort William and Glencoe, tyndrum and south to Edinburgh or Glasgow..
2. Fife, Angus and Loch Lomond: This tour takes you from east to west, through very different landscape, but without too much driving. excursions for daytime . The Kingdom of Fife is just across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh, a county of small fishing villages, such as Anstruther Crail (Sauchope Links Caravan Park) and with St. Andrews as the main town - university, lots of interesting shops and the world-famous Old Course Golf Links. Not far inland from St. Andrews is Clayton Caravan Park, so you can choose between the countryside enough to keep you busy for a couple of days.
If you head north across the Tay Road Bridge, through Dundee, and on to Monifieth, you can stop off in the Riverview Holiday Park, close to the beach, but within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. Visit Arbroath Abbey, where Scotland's Declaration of Independence was signed in 1320 and Dundee and the RRS Discovery. A litle further north, at Carnoustie (the home of another famous golf course) is Woodlands Caravan Park, quite small, sheltered all round by a wall and a few minutes on foot to the centre.
From Monifieth, make your way west, with perhaps a stop-off in the Five Roads Holiday Park at Alyth - an ideal place from which to go walking in the Angus Glens, with the advantage of a pub/restaurant right next door.
From here travel to Perth and on to Stirling and via Drymen to Loch Lomond. You have two choices of caravan parks - Lomond Woods, which is at the south end of the Loch or Loch Lomond Holiday Park, at the north or spend a couple of nights at each; they are far enough apart to make this a sensible idea. You can take a boat trip on the Loch, which is the best way to see it and walk through the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
