Forests are great places to visit in the summer when the trees are in full leaf and the birds are nesting.  Whether it's for a leisurely stroll or adrenalin-fuelled mountain-biking, Scotland's National Forests have something for everyone. Forestry and Land Scotland manages six forest parks across Scotland, with walking and bike trails, visitor  and heritage centres, offering a fantastic day out on your caravanning holiday.  At Glenmore Visitor Centre near Aviemore, in the Cairngorms National Park, you can explore for miles,  have an energetic day out - and then enjoy  the food  in the cafe. You could relax on Loch Morlich beach or hike into the hills from the Sugarbowl. For all you need to know visit www.forestryandland.gov.scot

The Queen's View is at the heart of Highland Perthshire, not far from Pitlochry. You can enjoy views fit for a queen (at the Queen's View), along with a nice cup of tea in the cafe!  Pick out some gifts in the well-stocked shop and then explore the forest.  Find out more at www.forestryandland.gov.scot

The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park includes places where Scottish people love to go. Magnificent Loch Lomond, the wooded Trossachs hills and picturesque Loch Katrine, where once Rob Roy MacGregor roamed.  The colours are wonderful, whatever the season, and there is so much to see and do - whether you want to relax or stroll (or even swing) through the trees or take a trip on a steamship on Loch Katrine.  The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre near Aberfoyle is the perfect place to start your forest adventure, because there is a lot to see and a cafe with the best view in Scotland.  Visit www.forestryandland.gov.scot/qefp

Argyll Forest Park on the Cowal Peninsula is the gateway to the great sea lochs in the West.  With mountains, glens, lochs and forests, Argyll Forest Park is considered by many to be the "finest of them all".  Although the Park is only a short distance from Glasgow, it is easy to find wild places; as you travel north. Visit.  www.forestryandland.gov.scot/argyllforestpark

In the Scottish Borders, just an hour south of Edinburgh is Tweed Valley Forest Park.  With seven unique forests, the Park offers a place for you, whether you want a quiet picnic, a tree-top adventure, a glimpse of the Valley's pre-histroic past or some of Britian's best mountain-biking.  Famous for its mountain-biking routes, Glentress is the most popular forest in the park and it has some wonderful walking trails, an exciting Go Ape tree-top adventure course, a welcoming cafe and a well-stocked bike-hire shop. Make sure that you stop off on your way to explore and enjoy the Forest Park.  Visit  www.forestryandland.gov.scot/tvfp

Explore the rolling hills and glens of Galloway Forest Park in the South West of Scotland to enjoy picturesque trails, three visitor centres, wonderful wildlife and the colourful history of the area.  Enjoy great walks, easy cycle trails for families, exhilarating mountain-biking, and enjoy the breath-taking views of lochs and mountains.  Tip: the Galloway Forest Park has almost no light pollution and you can see a million stars so stay outside when the sun goes down. www.forestryandland.gov.scot/gallowayforestpark
