On your caravan touring holiday this autumn, explore Scotland and our castles and historic houses, but there is much more to do;  watch wildlife, walk in the forests, watch a weaver at work.  Autumn is here and now is the time to enjoy a short break before Winter comes..Our attractions are still open and it's fun getting out and about.

Where to goHistoric Scotland's castles and abbeys tell the story of Scotland's history in peace and war, from Kelso Abbey in the borders to Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. If you like walking or cycling, then Forestry Commission Scotland's forests are for you.and Edinburgh Woollen Mill's visitor centres are ideal for shopping or a good meal; 

Itineraries:  If you want ideas for your holicay and which area to visit, go to the Holiday Ideas' page.  Some of our Parks have lots of information on their local area.

Scotland's Wildlife:  How's this for a roll call of what can be seen?  red deer, roe deer, red squirrels, hares, badgers, perhaps pine martens and the Scottish wild cat, eagles, osprey, sea eagles, kites, hawks, oyster-catchers, curlews and lapwings, waders at the seashore, pheasants, partridges, grouse on farmland and moorland, and puffins and gannets on the cliffs.. In the water, you can spot seals and otters, and dolphins and whales. Autumn is when the migratng birds return to Scotland.  A great way to spot wildlife and birdlife is to follow one of Forestry Commission Scotland's walking trails.  These are graded so that you can choose the one that's right for you.  For information, go to http://www.forestry.gov.uk/scotland    Several of our Thistle Holiday Parks and visitors attractions in Scotland are wildlife-friendly, with bird boxes, copses and wild areas tucked away in a corner of their park. .
