The Highlands and the Outer Hebrides  An itinerary for you to follow:    From Inverness head west to Gairloch, a fishing village on the west coast (ca.2 hours). A mile from the village is Sands Caravan Park,spread along the beach, protected by dunes from the Atlantic surf.  Visit Inverewe Garden, Gruinard Bay, Beinn Eighe, and the, Gairloch Heritage Museum.  Next stop is Badrallach Campsite, along a spectacular, winding road (not recommended for touring caravans), on the shores of Little Loch Broom; capture its sense of tranquillity, watch others at play and try kayaking.   From here to Ullapool is just thirty miles and then the CalMac ferry to the Outer Hebrides.  Laxdale Holiday Park is close to Stornoway and from here you can visit the Callanais Standing Stones, the Black House, the Isle of Harris Distillery, Carloway Mill and beautiful beaches.  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. Turn south to Stranraer (Whitecairn Farm Caravan Park) and then east along the Solway Firth and you have a choice of Seaward Holiday Park, Kippford Holiday Park, and Southerness Holiday Park, whilst inland are Loch Ken, Glenearly and Queensberry Bay Caravan Parks. :
