Facilities on Thistle Holiday Parks
Please note that, although the park may be open (from 15 July), it is very possible that the central facilities, catering outlets, leisure faclities, games rooms, showers and toilets will not be available until it is certain that they are safe for everyone to use.
Each park's entry has symbols to show facilities on-site (e.g. restaurant, shop) and within 2 miles e.g. sandy beaches. Please check before booking.if a particular facility is important for you.
VisitScotland Grading If a park has opted to join the VisitScotland grading scheme, their award is on their entry, either 4 stars or 5 stars. VS visit the parks once a year.
VisitScotland Welcome Awards: Some parks have gained extra awards for the facilities and services they provide to Walkers and Cyclists, to Bikers, to Anglers, and to Golfers.
Some have a Children Welcome award to indicate that they have play areas and/or a games room..
Accessibility for guests with a mobility impairment: We ecnourage our parks to prepare access guides so that their guests have full information on
which accommodation and facilities on their park are accessible, whether you are on crutches or use a wheelchair! If there is no information on a park's entry, please call them and ask.
Green Tourism Business Scheme Some parks are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme so that they are environmentally friendly. Perhaps they have, for example, an area set aside for wildlife or are efficient in recycling. If so, their award appears on their website.
David Bellamy Conservation Award: some of our parks have committed themselves to being wildlife-friendly and take part in the scheme initiated by the noted conservationist, David Bellam, and are awarded either Bronze or Silver or Gold. Look out for the symbols on their entries.
