On your return to the mainland go east via Lairg to Black Rock Caravan Park at Evanton, north of Inverness.
The East Coast:
Aberdeenshire: Huntly in Aberdeenshire is in the heart of Castle and Whisky Country. Almost next door to Huntly Castle Caravan Park is Huntly Castle and within a few miles are distilleries and other castles. A great alternative if you have children is Banff Links Caravan Park, on the beach but a short walk from this attractive town. Head south to Royal Deeside for a stay on Deeside Holiday Park west of Aberdeen. then south into the county of Angus; near the beach at Monifieth is Riverview Caravan Park. An alternative is to the village of Alyth, with two options for you: Five Roads Caravan Park is a small park, with a good bus service to Perth and Dundee, whilst Nethercraig Holiday Park is a short distance away, in the heart of the Angus Glens.
From Angus it is a short journey over the Firth of Tay to Fife and Clayton Caravan Park, just four miles from the historic town of St. Andrews – with its castle and cathedral and lots of interesting shops. Still in Fife but this time right by the beach is Sauchope Links Caravan Park on the outskirts of Crail, an attractive fishing village.
The South West: This is farming country, hills and moorlands, and beautiful beaches. Crofthead Holiday Park near Ayris a good starting point. Ayr is a busy market town so there is always plenty to do.
