Enjoy the scenery at caravan parks in Scotland

As a way to see the great outdoors, in the Borders or Highlands, on the coast or in the mountains, caravan parks in Scotland are ideal. We picked out some of the most scenic.

Blair Castle Caravan Park (www.blaircastlecaravanpark) near Pitlochry, combines great facilities with spectacular Highland scenery. There are 182 hard standing and grass pitches available, suitable for motorhomes, touring caravans and campers.

The area offers a  40 mile network of way-marked trails to explore, and facilities for fishing, pony trekking, and Land Rover safaris. A touring pitch costs between £16.50 and £19.50 depending on the season.

Lochranza Camping and Caravan site (www.arran-campsite.com), offers a tranquil stay on the north side of the isle of Arran close to the ferry for Kintyre. There are facilities for  motorhomes and caravans, with hot showers and hot water for dishwashing. The Stags Pavilion, next to the site, is open all day for snacks and meals. Fees are £5 for adults, £3 for children, with a £5-6 charge for vehicles, and a £3.50 charge for an electrical hook-up.

Machrihanish Camping and Caravan Park (www.campkintyre.co.uk), on the Mull of Kintyre, has facilities for motor homes and caravans, on a spectacular site right on the wild west coast.

This is one of the most scenic caravan parks in Scotland offering views out to sea towards Islay and Jura. The golden beaches are ideal for surfing, canoeing and birdwatching, with peregrines and buzzards commonly sighted. Adults are charged £6 a night, children £2.75 a night, and an electrical hook-up is £2.75 a night
