5 beautiful locations that contain some of the best campsites Scotland has to offer


A road trip to the Scottish highlands and camping in the middle of the gorgeous scenery that Scotland has to offer is something that has been on my bucket list for quite a while now. Whenever I hear the name Scotland, I think of dramatic landscapes (the dream of every photographer), and I think of beautiful castles and many other amazing things that make this place so unique.

A while back I mentioned that when we will be able to travel again, my dream trip would be with a caravan and not any caravan but a Bailey of Bristol one. I find them incredibly beautiful and just perfect for our family of four. Of course, they have a lot of caravans and motorhomes that are just perfect for a road trip, all you have to do is choose the right one from your local retailer and then pick your destination. 

We picked Scotland because it’s a place that I really wanted to see and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am! We’ve been checking the UK campsites Scotland has to offer from the Caravan and Motorhome Club and the Camping and Caravanning Club.

Locations that have some of the best campsites Scotland offers for natural beauty

Below are some of the best places to see from some of the best campsites Scotland has for you to stay on.

Isles of Lewis and Harris 

These two islands lie on the top of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland’s West Coast. Even though they are very close to each other, they have different landscapes but their proximity makes it easy to visit them on one trip. 

People voted the beaches from Lewis and Harris as some of the best beaches in the world and if you take a look at them it is quite easy to understand why. White sands, turquoise water, it’s like heaven on earth. The beautiful Luskentyre is a must-see but all the beaches from these two islands have something unique to offer and wait to be discovered.

Mull of Galloway

This breathtaking place is situated at the end of a 5-mile long country road and it is often referred to as “Scotland’s Lands End”. What can you do here? Well, it depends on what you want to do! If you love a good walk, then the Mull of Galloway trail is something that you should definitely consider. As someone with a big passion for photography, for me, this trail is fantastic because it will give me the opportunity to see all the beautiful things that this place has to offer.
If you’re the more adventurous type, then the cliff walks are definitely something you should consider.

Forth Bridge

This majestic bridge is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s really a must-see in my opinion. It was opened in 1980 and it stretches for 2,5 km between the towns of North and South Queensferry.  

Glenfinnan Monument

This iconic monument is honoring the fallen Jacobite clansmen and it has panoramic views of Loch Shiel, the mountains and the Glenfinnan viaduct. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, like my children then this location is a must-see.

Isle of Skye 

Last but not least, the most magical place to discover in Scotland, the stunning Isle of Skye. What can you see here? Well, the 90 Kilt Rock that resembles a pleated kilt is a must-see and let’s not forget about the Mealt waterfall that is a true delight to the eye.


Before you go on a motorhome or caravan adventure, make sure to check out the caravan and motorhome campsites Scotland has to offer, including some of the smaller campsites Scotland can provide if you want to really get away from it all. That way you can make sure that you are close to the place you want to visit. 

Check if the location you want to visit is available on the date that you have in mind and even reserve tickets if necessary.

Also, check out the News & Events section on the Bailey of Bristol website. There you can check the latest news and also find some useful travel inspiration. 

I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited about this adventure and I can’t wait to discover what Scotland has to offer together with my family.
