Campsites in Scotland

A small country, Scotland boasts a history as diverse as its landscape; from the gentle rolling hills of the south, the towering peaks and magnificent mountains of the north, to the rugged coastlines of the north east, Scotland has been both occupied and independent throughout its human habitation. The campsites in Scotland span across the whole country ranging from the Borders to the Highlands.

Things to do in Scotland

Edinburgh is the country’s capital and second largest city (Glasgow is the largest) and was the hub of the Scottish Enlightenment in the 18th century, which transformed Scotland into one of the commercial, intellectual and industrial powerhouses in Europe.

Scotland’s only land border is with England and runs for approximately 60 miles coast to coast. During the last ice age, Scotland was covered by massive ice sheets, and owes much of its rugged beauty to the effects of glaciation. The varied climate has resulted in a wide range of important habitats, and the relatively sparse population makes Scotland a fantastic place for studying a wide variety of wildlife.

All campsites in Scotland offer plenty of activities and major attractions including angling, golf, the Highland Games, the Edinburgh Festival, majestic castles, stately homes, ancient stone circles, national parks, science centres and craft workshops.

With a plethora of activities available, and fabulous attractions to visit, camping in Scotland is the perfect holiday choice!
