Touring Scotland with Motorhome and Tent

von Judith Sleigh

Thistle Holiday Parks are among the best in Scotland and I am lucky enough to work for them. Many of the Thistle Parks are owned by families who are on the park every day to ensure that everything is just right for their guests. They have all been awarded 4 or 5 stars by VisitScotland, which means that their facilities and the service they offer are top-class. The parks take motorhomes and many of them also take tents. If you are coming to Scotland, we recommend that you plan your visit and spend more than one night in each park so you can explore the area and cut down the number of miles you travel. Booking in advance is a good idea because caravan parks are busy in the summer and you can be sure of having your pitch ready for you at the end of each day.

If you’ve not been to Scotland before, you may want to visit the Highlands; here are some parks and ideas on what you can visit nearby.

  • Crossburn Caravan Park at Peebles, in the Borders, ideal for an overnight; nearby is Traquair House, an historic house, visited by Mary, Queen of Scots
  • Blair Castle Caravan Park in beautiful Highland Perthshire, with Pitlochry as the main town
  • Black Rock Caravan & Camping Park, north of Inverness and not far from Dunrobin Castle
  • Sands Caravan and Camping at Gairloch on the west coast, just a few miles from Inverewe Garden
  • Invercoe Caravan Park in remote Glencoe near Fort William
  • Trossachs Holiday Park near Aberfoyle, not far from Kilmahog where you can buy tweeds and woollens
  • Mount View Caravan Park, south of Glasgow, well placed for your last night in Scotland; nearby is the village of New Lanark

But if you want to explore a different area of Scotland, then head west to Dumfries and Galloway, where the scenery may be less spectacular than in the Highlands, but where there are lovely beaches, the Galloway Forest Park, nature reserves, and plenty of castles, historic houses and gardens. If you like walking and cycling, there are many trails through the forests and along the coast.
The Thistle Holiday Parks which will welcome you are (from east to west):

  • Queensberry Bay Holiday Park, near Dumfries
  • Cressfield Holiday Park, near Dumfries
  • Kippford Holiday Park, south of Dumfries
  • Glenearly Caravan Park, at Dalbeattie
  • Loch Ken Holiday Park, in the Galloway Forest Park
  • Glenluce Caravan Park, to the west of Newton Stewart
  • Sands of Luce Caravan Park, south of Stranraer
