Camping is about getting away from it all, and there are few places that offer as many places to truly escape than Scotland. Home to some of the most remote campsites in the whole of the UK, the Highlands, Islands and Lowlands of Scotland have campsites to suit every camper, whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or active holiday.
Camping holidays are the best way to experience the awesome scenery that Scotland has to offer. With the freedom to camp almost anywhere, you can bring your tent, touring caravan or motor home to explore. Or for a truly relaxing break, choose from one of the country’s many holiday parks and rent your own lodge or luxury caravan home. If you plan on making it a regular trip, Park Resorts offer caravans for sale UK and Scotland-wide for an affordable holiday home option.
For those looking to camp out under the canvas and experience true tranquillity, here are just a handful of some of the most beautiful and remote Scottish campsite locations to give you some holiday inspiration.
There are few better places to escape the rat race than the Scottish Islands. The Glenbrittle site is set at the foot of the Black Cuillins on the shore of Loch Brittle, allowing you to camp right on the beach. With fabulous walking and climbing routes right on your doorstep, you can relax after a long hike with a wee dram at the nearby Talisker Distillery too.
One of Scotland’s most famous landmarks, Loch Lomond is a haven that allows you so many activity options. The Cashel site is located right on the shore, so you can launch boats directly from the site and explore the Loch’s many small islands. Wile away the hours walking through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, or take the short bus ride or car drive to nearby Glasgow for a taste of bustling Scottish culture at its finest.
If watersports are your thing, then Badrallach has a range of fantastic facilities on offer. Located on the Scoraig peninsula by the shores of Little Loch Broom, this picturesque little campsite offers mountain bike, kayak and beach kart hire, as well as Shetland sail boat hire.
For something a little different, leave your tent at home and spend a night under the stars in one of Strathfillan’s wooden wigwams. Stunning mountain views over the West Highland Way await you on your return from a day in the hills, with a cosy and comfortable bed to look forward to in this quaint and quirky campsite.
