With the breath-taking hills and coast, the awe-inspiring ruins and castles, and mingling of wilderness and civilization, a holiday at one of Scotland’s holiday parks can be your best choice for a get-away. There are a host of Scotland holiday parks that cater for different tastes, budgets and experiences, so choosing a specific one can be overwhelming. Here are a few guidelines to help narrow your choice to single out the best park in Scotland for that ideal holiday.
What fits your budget?
Establishing a price-range is a good way to start thinning down your search options for the ideal Scotland holiday park. Once you have decided on a budget you can research your options and deals available to you. If you’re looking for indulgence, adventure, or something in-between, there is a holiday park for you at a price to match.
How many people are in your group?
The size of your group is a defining factor of where to have your Scottish holiday. Some parks may have mainly smaller properties, more suited to small groups; others will offer larger lodges and caravans to sleep 8 or more. Of course you can always hire more than one property if you are a family, planning to holiday alongside another family.
How old are the people in your group?
The age factor is an important one. Does your group have a wide range of ages? Are there only adults in your group? Answering this question will determine the type of activities you need at the park, so perhaps children can go exploring, cycling or visit a child-friendly activity centre, while the older members of the group enjoy fine dining or visit the local pub.
Do you need a pet-friendly holiday park?
One of the perks of choosing a caravanning or camping holiday is the number of pet-friendly holiday parks available to you. They allow you to truly bring the whole family along. Some parks are dog-friendly but not cat-friendly, especially if the park is a conservancy. So which park you choose will depend on what kind of four-legged family member you wish to bring along and how well trained they are.
How far do you want to travel?
Deciding on where you want to holiday helps focus your search to a particular area or type of destination. There are multiple holiday parks strewn all over Scotland, so your choice of park will be determined by whether you want a long road trip or a short trip to get you there.
Are you going wild or civilized?
Are you looking to indulge yourself in a hot-tub in the wilderness, or are you an adventurer wanting to leave behind the civilized world and camp under the stars? This decision enables you to search for a particular type of holiday park. If you can’t decide there are many Scotland holiday parks that offer a range of options, to cater for the multiple interests in your group. With a little investigation, you will find the best Scotland holiday park to suit your needs.
So research, plan, decide and enjoy!
