Listed below, are our recommended top five caravan destinations that can be found across Scotland, all suitable for those looking for adventure, and for those seeking to relax in the wilderness.

Cairngorms National Park

Renowned for dramatic landscapes and excellent wildlife sightings, the Cairngorms National Park can offer campers and caravanners the opportunity to get close to nature. The Cairngorms National Park is located in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, and so is close to walking and hiking trails, historic landmarks, and small towns.

The Isle of Skye
