If you love the idea of camping, but are concerned about the possibility of spending a week under canvas in inclement weather, then fear not! There’s an alternative way to enjoy the best parts of camping holidays but to stay dry at the same time. Park holidays offer all the benefits of camping without any of the drawbacks.
Holiday Parks in Scotland
Staying on a holiday park, you can choose a range of different accommodation. You can either bring your own tent or touring caravan with you or you can opt to choose in the different accommodation owned by the holiday park – including mobile homes and holiday lodges. So you can take the comfort level as high as you wish, as holiday lodges are really a home away from home with all the home comforts included like a fully fitted kitchen, a spacious lounge and en-suite bathrooms. And while that kind of accommodation isn’t really ‘camping’ you’ll still be on the holiday park, where you can enjoy all the benefits of a campsite, such as evening entertainment and facilities such as a swimming pool.
Many of the holiday parks in Scotland are set in glorious locations with plenty of safe and secure outside space for the children to run around in. Often there are also kids’ clubs with entertainment on tap so that mum and dad can have a bit of downtime by themselves. Staying on a holiday park can be much more relaxing for a family than staying in a hotel, where space is limited and there’s an expectation on the children to be on best behaviour all the time.
And should you be unlucky and get a rainy week, you’ll have plenty of things to do on-site including spending time in the indoor heated swimming pool. Hopefully, though, you’ll get the weather you want so that you can enjoy the time exploring the beautiful Scottish countryside that you’ve come to see!
